The South American Andes is the home of this striking and immaculate shrub, which is normally deciduous, but semi-evergreen in protected warm positions. Since its introduction to gardens over 200 years ago, it has been a great favourite for its graceful habit and fine colouring, the tall slender stems bearing long handsome leaves, richly textured and covered beneath with soft brown 'wool'. The flower-heads, golden orange and fragrant, resemble perfect pompon dahlias, and they appear in huge numbers, weighing down the already arching stems. Will grow in sunny and dapple shaded sites in most soil types that are moist but well-draining. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
