It has a basal rosette that can get to be 3′ tall and wide. It has slender, arching, strap-shaped, medium green leaves each 3/4″ wide.
Bloom stalks rise from the center of the rosette and can be up to 6 ft. tall. Flower color can range from yellow, pink to red. A. flavidus is the toughest species, able to take wet conditions, heavier soils, full sun to light shade and is resistant to disease.
The one that we have, has yellow flowers with red stems and hairs and I believe it to be ‘Landscape Yellow’, but it could be a seed sown selection that closely matches that.
