Helianthus salicifolius 'Autumn Gold'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • Brightens up autumn days with blooms like sunny yellow daisies
  • Great companion or hardy alternative to mums
  • Grassy foliage is a welcome contrast to leafy plants in the mixed border
  • More compact than the species

Long lasting flowers are golden yellow and daisy-like, appearing in late summer and lasting until hard frost. The flowers are in abundance on this well-branched dwarf variety, covering the plant with color when little else is still blooming. It is low maintenance and drought tolerant once established. Late blooming sunflowers feed pollinators late in the season and birds will eat the seeds through the winter. Native to the prairies of south-central United States.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, in moist soil; tolerant of different soil types, such as clay, but prefers good drainage. Seed clusters can be left on through winter to feed the birds; cut spent material to the ground in early spring. Divide this slow spreader every 3-4 years.
