A really useful addition to this group of plants, not only does this form (height 2m/6.5ft) have the wonderful yellow flowers of its other family members, in the spring, but the foliage which follows the flowers is mottled and along with the dark stems, gives it a much longer season of interest. It should be grown in full sun to partial shade in any normal garden soil.
