Zizea aurea (Golden Alexander)

This is a lovely perennial for the home garden. It blooms from early May into June and is a very nice long lasting cut flower. The plant pictured is in a site which receives a few hours of morning sun. It looks nice planted with Virginia bluebells as they are still in bloom when the Zizea begins blooming.
