Common Name: False Sunflower, Sunflower Heliopsis
This beautiful and carefree native cultivar offers a more compact habit and good disease resistance compared to other varieties of Heliopsis.

It provides a brilliant beacon of color in the landscape during the hottest months of summer. Be sure to plant a few extra for your fresh bouquets!
Heliopsis have traditionally been an excellent tall perennial for the middle or back of the flower border. It has a bushy, well-branched form and glossy, deep green, triangular leaves – a real workhorse in the garden! Use this plant in combination containers, as a cut flower, or to attract butterflies to your garden.
Heliopsis can be grown in either full sun or part shade, but it performs much better in full sun. Soil of average fertility is preferable. When grown in moist, rich soil, it tends to need staking. Growth will be strongest in soil with average fertility and moisture.
Deadheading spent flower heads will extend the flowering time and prevent self-seeding.
