Walther Funcke, nice coppery orange.  I cut it back in early June and it makes height of about 2' 6"".   Moonshine too is about the same after the same treatment.  Secret is to grow in poorish,,dryish soil I think.  Terracotta is also nice, for an achillea, at about 3'.  All compact when compared with Cloth of Gold.
