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.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!
