Golden lace is truly one of the best new perennials in the last couple of decades for adding a bit of summer bling to your garden. After doing the green scabiosa-like rosette thing for the first year, every year thereafter you will find clusters of tall, airy, see-through 50-70" stems, topped with chrome-yellow flowers throughout the summer. After the blooms fade, the remaining floral parts retain the golden color. Patrinia scabiosifolia is a great plant to blend in the garden border or to use in flower arrangements. In good soils, Patrinia scabiosifolia will even reseed to create some truly special combinations.
