The blooms have an intense colouring and are covered in a soft fuzz which serves to magnify the colour further. The sizeable golden stamens provide a stunning compliment. The flowers average 5-7cm across. They open on short stems from as early as late winter, but mainly in spring.
The blooms open freely and for an exceptional period once established, especially considering the size of the plant.
You can't help but love these plants they are just so dainty and unusual. The flowers are followed by handsome, fuzzy seed heads like that of Clematis. Along with the flowers, the grey green foliage has a soft fuzz or fur covering, in the sun it gives the plant a special glow. The foliage and seed head continue to look attractive through summer before fading in autumn.
