Description

Heliopsis helianthoides var. scabra 'Asahi' is a double-flowered cultivar of false sunflower, also known as ox-eye daisy. 'Asahi' is unique in having numerous congested, toothed central golden florets surrounded by several rings of larger, normal ray flowers. It is a tough, hardy native perennial found in prairies and along the edges of woodlands. At 2 feet tall, this false sunflower is shorter than the wild species. Once established, 'Asahi' is drought-tolerant and long-blooming—usually from June to September. This species is found in the wild from Hudson Bay to Florida, and west to North Dakota and New Mexico.
