Also known as Yellow Mignonette for its creamy showering flower spikes. This is a source of yellow colorfast dye, but it is not the real Dyers Rocket/Weld (Reseda luteola) as last year's catalog identified it. (We apologize for this error that began with misidentified stock seed.) Dye is extracted from the leaves, flowers, and seedpods. The seeds are shiny, luscious, and attractive to hold. Perhaps our most attractive insectary plant. Bees go absolutely bonkers for this plant, and consequently I find myself staring into it to see what all the fuss is about. Likely to self sow. Needs a well-drained soil. Reaches about 2’ tall, space 12” apart.
