Heliopsis helianthoides - FALSE SUNFLOWER (OX EYE)

No reviews yet
Product Code: HEL-HEL-X
$5.99

Easy to grow and forgiving long-flowering perennial, very valuable for many native insects, several butterflies and skippers and small birds. Tough and longer-lived.

3' tall x 1.5-2' wide, stays in clumps, coarse leaves and a very long flowering season in the summer (June to August, so over 2 months).

Full sun, half sun, half shade, up to very light shade. Average soil with average moisture to slightly moist. Adaptable to many soil types, including clay or rocky soil

Suitable for zones 3 to 9.

Native to eastern and central USA and some southern states, see the BONAP distribution map. Naturally occurs in many types of prairies and prairie remnants, savannas, open woodlands, grassy meadows in wooded areas, open woodlands, woodland edges etc.

Deer may browse on the young sprouts, but avoids coarse thick mature leaves. Valuable plant that attracts wide variety of insects - many native bees  (bumblebees, little carpenter bees, digger bees, cuckoo bees, leaf-cutting bees, Halictid bees,  Andrenid bees), several species of wasps, bee flies, beetles, butterflies and skippers. Small songbirds can feed on the seeds.

Excellent plant for the transition areas in your garden (with some sun and some shade during the day) or for sunny bed or woodland edge.

Due to its adaptability, it can be combined with typical border or more natural perennials like Asclepias tuberosa, Agastache, Chrysanthemum, Echinacea, Echinops, Eupatorium, Geranium 'Rozanne', Helenium, Liatris, Lupinus, Monarda, Penstemon digitalis, Perovskia, Phlox, Rudbeckia, Salvia nemorosa, Sedum telephium (Sedum x hybridum), Veronicastrum, Vernonia, etc.

This is a very good companion to the most popular perennials in the USA - the bearded Iris, Siberian iris and daylilies (Hemerocallis). It will also look good with taller or tall grasses like Andropogon gerardii, Panicum virgatum (switch grass), Schizachyrium scoparium, Sporobolus heterolepis, Pennisetum, or summer flowering shrubs like Hydrangea paniculata.

Great cut flower!
