We formerly sold this as H. 'Light Yellow', but have now correctly identified it as the Indian species, H. flavescens. The very hairy foliage, especially on the new growth, adorns the 6' stalks (taller in warmer regions). In late fall, the plants are topped with wonderful clusters of creamy yellow flowers. H. flavescens is a later flowering species, so in areas with freezes prior to November, you will want to keep this one indoors.
