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.
A cheerful mop of clustered golden yellow daisies crest towering, 6 ft. tall valiant stems guised with leathery needle-like rich green leaves. One of the last perennial Sunflowers to bloom, this striking American native flaunts copious large flowers, each defined by nearly 15 sun-stained petals encompassing a purplish brown cone. Hard to miss, even from a distance, the Swamp Sunflower’s brilliant persona can grace the perennial border, stylized meadow or butterfly garden, where it grows well among Asters and Schizachyrium, wards off deer and relishes sunny moist niches, but acquiesces to other conditions.
Size: 6' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Helianthus angustifolius (P-1681)
