Heliopsis helianthoides ‘Loraine Sunshine’

False Sunflower

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.255.150

A remarkable and extremely handsome summer-flowering perennial, forming an upright bushy clump of coarse leaves, nearly white with strong green markings or veins. Large golden-yellow daisies begin to appear in mid summer, lasting for many weeks. The compact habit means that staking is not usually required. A unique cutflower. Give this plant a prime spot in the sunny garden, and contrast it with dark burgundy, maroon or green-leaved companions. Dislikes drying out during summer droughts. A Blooms of Bressingham introduction. USPP#10690, CPBR#1596: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
