Slender spikes of brilliant yellow flowers on dramatic, black stems zoom above large, handsome, boldly toothed leaves in July and August. This towering deciduous perennial makes a striking specimen plant for a moist, sunny border or bog garden. Or try it beside water, and make sure it has protection from the strong, midday sun. Garden care: Protect the young shoots from slug damage using beer traps or environmentally-friendly slug pellets. The plant must be kept moist; line the plant hole with plastic, making a couple of holes in the plastic for drainage. Water regularly during periods of drought. Lift and divide large clumps in spring or after flowering. Apply a generous 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost in spring.
