Similar to basket of gold, but so far they are more compact, with darker green leaves - and their bloom season is different, at least judging by their behavior in their first year in our garden: Some tentative blooms by mid-summer, culminating in more yellow coverage by early fall. I had hoped they would show their real selves in years to come, but the plants never lived into a second year. Another attempt from seed this year.
