Awarded the prestigious All American Selections Award in 2003, 'Golden Jubilee' couples everyone's favorite aspects of tropical annuals(bold blooms and flashy foliage) into a hardy perennial. The unusual golden foliage gives way to deep purple (almost blue) flowering heads. This variety has very strong stems that keep plants upright even through the heaviest thunderstorms. The hundreds of tubular blooms that make up a flowering head are loved by bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Drought tolerant once established.
