Recently introduced, 'Sweet Corn' attracts attention with its densely packed poker-like spikes of warm yellow flowers that open from buttery buds - a passing resemblance to corn-on-the-cob.  Although more petite in size, each plant clumps up quickly with lots of spikes to produce a bright and cheerful display from late summer into autumn, its evergreen narrow foliage providing further interest through winter.

Perfect for adding a punch of colour into a border when earlier flowering perennials are starting to flag, combine it with blues, purples and rusty oranges for bold impact.  Tough, hardy and able to cope with salt-laden coastal air too, it performs best in full sun in a fertile, reasonable soil, well-drained with some moisture.
