Bartzella gets a lot of attention at our farm.
We have 2 rows of Bartzella planted near the road. Every year when Bartzella flowers, people start lining up to reserve roots for the fall.
The color is vibrant (arguably one of the best yellows on the market). The flowers are huge and bloom upright. The form is semi-double to double with our 4-year plants arguably producing more doubles than semi-doubles.
As an added bonus, Bartzella has a bloom season that can last for 3-4 weeks and the blooms have a light lemony fragrance.
