By far my favorite offering of Michigan Bulb. Neon yellow flowers will keep you entertained most of Summer. I've had these for 13+ years and they remain hardy year after year. Was disappointed that my order this year was cancelled just as I was ready to extend by gardens. Bummer!

Ordered two of these in the fall of 2011. They bloomed that first summer and have thrived despite drought conditions, a little neglect on my part and the occasional trampling of a toddler. I'm ordering more!

I bought the plant three years ago and they continuously bloom every year without major care. The flowers keep blooming over and over especially in the summertime.

This little bush is entertaining! The flowers bloom each night at sunset. Each flower opens over about 2 minutes. It is covered in blooms by dark. The flowers wilt by morning. The show starts each night from June till September. Grows FAST!
