An annual in our garden. The bright-green frilly foliage is nice by itself, but of course the real show is the burst of golden flowers in late spring. After growing it last year, I hoped this would self-seed, but only one seedling volunteered. Luckily, we started some more with leftover seed. Now I just need to remember to collect seed when it ripens, to ensure an ongoing supply...
