Our garden sports many kinds of meadow rue, but this is the only yellow one. The plants in our two clumps are robust, not minding full sun and a bit of drought, and the blue-green foliage is a good backdrop to many other plants. We cut ours down after blooming, since it has some tendency to flop at that point.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
