at Digging Dog
The clearest, brightest yellow, not at all pale and without a trace of gold, imbues the nearly 4 in. wide starry flowers of this willowy American native. Amazingly floriferous and versatile, the Aspen Sunflower is lower growing and earlier to bloom than its Helianthus counterpart.
Long, green and hirsute, straplike basal foliage blushes red come fall, while seed heads, waving on open branched sparsely leafed stalks, provide a banquet for the birds.
Originally collected in 1843 and dwelling throughout woodlands and stream sides from the “Aspen Belt” north to Wyoming and Montana, it will thrive in nearly any garden—semiarid or moist, sunny or a little shady—and makes a fine autumn bouquet with grasses and rosehips.
Blooms July – September.
Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 3.
Helianthella quinquenervis (P-1652)

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. Digging Dog's Early September 2017 Newsletter Link
