Heliopsis

Heliopsis helianthoides ‘Summer Nights’ full sun

Flashing a brilliant late season cornucopia of deep golden yellow daisies with mahogany-colored discs, this North American Helianthus relative sprouts slender red-infused branching stalks and opposite hairy leaves enriched by bronzy wine shades. A colorful North Creek Nursery selection, ‘Summer Nights’s tall sturdy stems yield marvelous long-lasting flowers that tantalize florists, songbirds and butterflies, yet easily fend off pests and occasional drought. False Sunflower’s versatile, dependable and no-fuss persona is well-suited for the middle of the border, a shrubby planting or even a less formal venue. It seldom needs staking, appreciates well-drained, somewhat moist fertile sites, and regular deadheading.

Blooms July-September

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

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
