Why: The ‘Gold and Bronze’ hy­brid has vivid golden-yel­low flow­ers with a bronze-red eye and blooms from spring to au­tumn. Easy grow­ing with com­pact growth, this peren­nial has mildewre­sis­tant fo­liage and is ideal for be­gin­ner and time-pressed gar­den­ers, plus the f low­ers at­tract pol­li­na­tors.

Where: Sun-lov­ing and drought tol­er­ant, it stands out in beds and bor­ders and isn’t fussy about soil.

How: Plant in full sun and wa­ter reg­u­larly. Cut the stems back af­ter f low­er­ing to en­cour­age a sec­ond flush. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 011 794 2316 or visit ball­straathof.co.za
