This lovely long-flowering, pale yellow tickseed is perfect for extending the season of a summer border in sun or partial shade. As long as it's deadheaded regularly it produces a succession of slender-stemmed, single, daisy-like flowers with orange-yellow centres from June to September. The flowers are also attractive to bees and butterflies

  • Garden care: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and water well during hot dry spells. Cut the faded flower-stems back down to ground level in autumn and compost.
