From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2016: WISH ME LUCK- SIBERIAN. Schafer/Sacks (Seedling No. S09-67-10), M, 26". A happy flower that makes us smile every time we see it. If you look carefully you will see it is not a traditional yellow. The signal shows it to be an overlay. (And hidden in its genes is a treasure trove of new red.) Large flowers are well formed, full, round, and ruffled. Styles are fancy, diamond shaped with curls, keels, and feathers. Great branching and bud count--seven buds per stalk. Blooms held nicely above foliage.
