Unsung Hero: Chrysocephalum aplicata 'Flambe Yellow'

An unsung hero in my garden, Chrysocephalum aplicata 'Flambe Yellow'. They're out front where the rabbits can munch on them. When I first planted them, the rabbits nipped them a bit, but after the plants had a chance to harden off from their luxurious greenhouse upbringing, the rabbits moved on to other things. They've bloomed like crazy ever since with no effort on my part, given little water and no fertilizer. About 10 inches (25 cm) tall, 24 inches (60 cm) wide. I planted two of them, and regret not planting more.


  1. Exploring your back pages. Glad to see this plant brings no regrets.

  2. One regret: that I didn't buy more of them!

    I suspect they may eventually bloom themselves to death, but I'm okay with that.
