This is one of the major components of our Once-Mown Meadows here onsite. Provide a full to mostly sunny site for optimum vigor and flowering. Deer and rabbit resistant and the flowers attract a variety of smaller pollinators. Item# 9885

Lemon Queen Sunflower

Helianthus x 'Lemon Queen', H. x laetiflorus, H. microcephalus 'Lemon Queen'

From mid to late summer to fall this vigorous sturdy sunflower covers up in soft lemony yellow 2-3" wide flowers over a period of about 6 weeks. Lemon Queen Sunflower is not for the faint of heart and can reach 6-8' high and slowly develops into a 3-4' wide clump of sturdy upright stems. A perfect specimen to add color to the late summer and fall garden where the nectar rich flowers attract bees and other pollinators. Provide a full sun location in an average moist soil but do not overfertilize as the stems may flop from excessive nitrogen. The flowers also make good cut flowers. This native perennial is reported to be a naturally occurring hybrid of two of our native species Helianthus pauciflorus var. subrhomboideus x H. tuberosus and is considered to be H. microcephalus by other sources. Image courtesy of North Creek Nurseries, all rights reserved.

The Little Brown Jug plant, Hexastylis arifolia var. arifolia, is a clump forming evergreen perennial native to much of the southeastern US as far west as eastern Louisiana (where these plants originated).
