These taller perennials usually remain in the 3 to 4 feet high range under most conditions. Use them behind and among low to medium height growing perennials, as specimen plants, near the middle to the back of border, in front of medium and large shrubs and very tall perennials, and around larger tree form plants. Some of these will make nice container specimens and when used in combinations for large and very large containers. Growing conditions may affect the plant's ultimate size. This list may also include some tropicals that are grown as die-back perennials in zone 8B so just keep that in mind if you are in a colder climate.
Bright golden yellow daisies top the sturdy and branched, 3-5' stems of this perennial native Sunflower. The Western Sunflower will quickly create a ground-covering colony of plants by multiplying via underground rhizomes. The spent flower stalks hold seeds for songbirds and will die back to the ground in fall but are quickly replaced by a multitude of new rosettes in winter. An easy and durable plant for naturalizing and native to much of the southeastern US. Considered to be one of the least aggressive spreading Sunflowers. Item# 10240
