    Great germination rate! Started end of December about to start flowering. Nice foliage color, excited to see the flowers.

    Hardy perennial

    Lemon fizz grew reliably over 10 years. My plants were lost in a garden re-design, and I'm delighted to have found seeds again. The true pale yellow is unlike any other accent plant I've tried, and does good work softening the brightness of yellow annuals.
