The attractive, glaucous leaves are more delicate than those of most hybrids (about 5" wide and 2' long). Butter yellow flowers appear late summer atop 3-6' plants. The foliage is the strength of this plant. One of the rare Southeastern natives of pine savannas and marshes in SC, GA, FL and MS. Native.
