Helianthus salicifolius


Willow-leaved Sunflower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.252.250


Native to the Eastern US, this imposing plant makes an unusual specimen in the sunny border. Very tall stems are clothed in long, drooping green leaves, sometimes said to look like a giant asparagus fern. Large golden-yellow daisies are produced in the autumn. Flowers and foliage are both excellent for cutting. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Stems sometimes require support to prevent flopping. Pinching in June and July will force a more compact habit. Attracts butterflies.
