Heliopsis helianthoides

Common name: Early Sunflower

Native plant

This bundle of sunshine puts on quite a show!  Bright yellow flowers begin blooming early in the summer and last 2-3 months.  Bloom time can be extended by deadheading.  Flowers attract a number of bees and butterflies. Plants can become quite tall, but overall height can be reduced by cutting back stems by a third early to mid May.
