Heat tolerance and compact size set ‘Bottle Rocket’ apart from others in this genus. Hardy from Zones 4 to 9, it has mustard-yellow flowers on sturdy stems just above the foliage. At 28 to 34 inches high with a slightly smaller spread, ‘Bottle Rocket’ has large serrated green leaves and forms a dense clump. It is nice addition to a shady garden.
