Cheerful bright yellow flowers in early spring. We got a few tentative flowers in late June of their first year. In a previous attempt, the plants didn't make it to year two, so I'm glad to at least see their blooms once (but hoping for a surviving crop this time around).

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

Both seed lots looked viable. Just goes to show the world of seed-trading is fraught with uncertainty!
