The common name Muck Sunflower somehow seems less than up to the task for a plant that has the potential to provide such a brilliant show of color that begins in late summer and lasts into fall. Loose clusters of 2-3" wide brilliant golden yellow sunflowers are poised on tall stems adorned with rich deep green lance-shape foliage. Depending on moisture levels and fertility this vigorous, native, perennial, fall sunflower may reach up to 8' high. To create fuller, sturdier, and shorter plants tip the Muck Sunflower in late spring. A single tip pruning in late spring will keep them fuller and bushier as well as causing them to produce more flowers than vertical growth. Our plants are seedling grown and originated from a collection in southwestern Louisiana. Item# 10872.

The flowers attract a variety of pollinators including butterflies. A near perfect replacement for lawn grass that provides a burst of brilliant fall color as well. Item# 10686.
