<i>Helianthus</i> x <i>multiflorus</i> ‘Capenoch Star’

Helianthus

Sunflower

The sunflower was once an emblem of the Sun God of the Incas. This well-loved genus is 150 species strong and includes not only sprightly garden plants but commercially important food and oil crops.

Our easy-to-grow selections tolerate a wide range of garden soils, attract bees, and make great cut flowers.

Helianthus x multiflorus ‘Capenoch Star’ full sun

Touted as one of the best late flowering perennials and considered a shining star amongst other Helianthus, ‘Capenoch Star’ headlines big-centered, large lemon- yellow blooms borne in cheerful abundance. Tidy forest green leaves bolster the sunny display, which bears some semblance to its annual cousin and looks positively radiant with a sweep of frothy white Persicaria polymorpha and Salvia ‘Blue Ensign’ in Great Dixter’s long border.

Blooms August – October.

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
