Tall Tickseed -- 'Gold Standard'
Pollinator value: Unknown with cultivars but Very High for the straight species. Cheerful yellow flowers on stems slightly shorter than the straight species yet sturdy and generally not needing support. Beautiful addition to a native or wild garden.
Gold Standard Tall Tickseed is a member of the Mt. Cuba Collection, plants selected for outstanding ecological and ornamental benefits. More information here
