Description

Forms very attractive, uniform and compact mounds. Densely packed, four-inch-long “rods” of tiny individual yellow gold florets appear in profusion for about four weeks in August and September. ‘Goldrush’ heralds the coming of Autumn with masses of yellow flower clusters, all but concealing its rich green foliage for about a month. It is as though King Midas had strolled by and brushed against the plant. Comes to Must Have Perennials from John Butcher, Berkshire, England.
