Description

Massive sprays of 2-inch, pale yellow flowers cover this "nativar" of the perennial willowleaf sunflower from late summer into fall. Plant this flower in full sun, average soils, and allow one year for the plant to establish its root system for best displays. It's hardy and perennial in the Chicago region and a magnet for honeybees and gold finches.
