Have you grown this one for long SBG? Do you find it reliably perennial?

it is short lived 3-4 yrs but does self sow well.. they all came through the very hard fosts well.

D lutea has small flowers size of a typical little finger nail. there are other yellow ones eg grandiflora and their flowers are not quite as big as D purpurea. temple bells is a named variety for instance. Come the autumn i may have some seedlings for you if you are interested Andrew.
