From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: YOTSUGI (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2011) 31" M. I would love to see this variety grown in pots in everyone’s back yard water feature. Shorter than many of the pseudatas, the plant is very vigorous, and the striking flowers are larger than many of the other pseudatas. It displays the characteristic of “pushing buds” giving it a long bloom season even though the stalk only has the terminal and one branch. Some of the later flowers might be below the foliage, but the black down in the signal and the large round bright yellow color of the signal will definitely make the flowers stand out. The name means “Four Trees”.
