Helianthus ‘Lemon Queen’


Perennial Sunflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.252.230


This back-of-the-border perennial is widely grown in Europe, and finally available here.

Can be pinched in June to keep height lower. May need to be staked. Clumps are easily divided in early spring. Attractive to butterflies.
