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.
Rugged, slender and deep green, ‘Gold Lace’s fine textured leaves and strong stems frame a verdant lacy tower all season long. Magnificent, 2 in. wide golden yellow flowers burst open in such bold profusion that this undemanding U.S. native becomes the star of the late summer border, headlining an unbeatable grand finale. Adored by butterflies, gardeners and florists, ‘Gold Lace’ thwarts bunnies and dry conditions once established, doesn’t require staking or much fertilizer and looks absolutely sublime accompanying Asters and Molinias.
Blooms late September–October.
Size: 4' 0" – 5' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.
