Comments: Has rather large, deeply cut, maple-like leaves that appear early in spring. Light yellow flowers on stalks that may reach 6-7 feet after plant has been in the garden two or more years. These tall, heavy flowering stalks break or fall over and require staking for prevention. In its southern growing range flowering occurs in July and it is be more than a month later in the northern growing area.
