(alexeenkoana of gardens)
A wonderful and floriferous garden species, thriving virtually everywhere and dependably making a superb show every spring, along with gentle increase underground. In addition, it self sows to a limited extent although it is never a weed in the manner of some of the yellow species.
It makes dense spikes crammed with large, creamy-yellow flowers very early in the year over compact glaucous foliage. Soon after flowering the plant vanishes underground for another 9 months.
