Helianthus ‘Happy Days’


Dwarf Perennial Sunflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.252.220


A terrific midsized perennial sunflower, ideal towards the middle of a sunny border but also short enough for containers or tubs. This forms an upright mound of pointy dark-green leaves. Strong stems appear by midsummer, holding bicolored daisies with yellow petals surrounding a wide anemone-style double golden centre or eye. Excellent for cutting. Plants prefer a sunny location but a rich and moisture-retentive soil. Easily divided in the spring. Cut the dead stems back to the ground in late fall, or leave for winter interest if desired.
