Like a beacon of light 'Lemon Queen' attracting bees, butterflies, and other pollinators to feast on nectar and pollen offered by the sunny yellow flowers. Great cut flower.

In areas with a long growing season, sow a new crop every 2–4 weeks up until 3 months before first fall frost for continuous bloom.
