Big, double, fluffy teddy bear of a flower, producing very dwarf, 15cm (6in) ultra double golden-yellow blooms. A real eye-catcher in the border, looks good in containers and is a must for its long lasting, impressive appearance in a vase. Height 45cm (18in). Spread: 30cm (12").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

  1. Fabulous fabulous fabulous!

    I grow these every year and they are stunning. Nice and compact, lots of blooms per plant and a long flowering season. Planted in blocks, they are great in the garden and ideal for cutting. Don't be put off by the bright colour and large blooms - they are not at all brash.
