Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

Brought to us from Arie Blom of AB-Cultivars  in The Netherlands, these new compact, bushy sneezeweed selections are sure to brighten any summer garden.  With selections in brilliant tomato red, fiery orange, glowing gold and sunshine yellow. Mexican culture came to mind. These plants come from the lab POTY virus free, so please replace your stock each year.

Sombrero couldn’t be brighter.  It is a true lemon yellow through and through and the cone of the blooms is even a shade of yellow, making this truly a sunny, happy day plant.  You’ll need your sombrero not to be blinded by the brightness of the blooms and the cuteness of this new plant.
