detailed seed-starting info below

Dwarf variety of this plant (the plain species grows to 5' tall). Sprays of tiny yellow flowers on wiry stems from coarse basal foliage. I tried to grow this several times from seed; although I got seedlings, they never made it through their first summer. So we recently bought a couple of nice-sized plants. I hope to be able to post a photo next year.

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