SneIrish's Heliopsis helianthoides - False Sunflower - 'Summer Sun' x 1 Blooming

Plant: False sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides) | Variety: Summer Sun

I bought two cup-sized plants of this False Sunflower at Frerich’s and planted them in Rhodo on June 30, 2008. They were planted directly in the center of the open sunny area between the Rhododendron and the Harry Lauder.
The first of the plants started to bloom on July 18, 2008. They continued to bloom most of the summer, getting to be about 30 inches tall.

2012 – Although I moved the main root from Rhodie to Gnomeville, I must have left a large enough piece of root behind. It’s growing and blooming again this year. If it’s this determined, I’ll let it stay.
