Western Sunflower

3 Quarts
  • Pollinator value:  Medium.  Special value to native bees.  Also attracts songbirds and butterflies.

    This long-blooming perennial, also known as “Naked-stem Sunflower,” produces up to a dozen brilliant and cheerful yellow flower heads per stalk, with the heads measuring 1.5 to 2.5 inches across. 

    It will tolerate drought and is a good plant for holding dry soils in place to prevent erosion.  Flowers appear in June and last into November.   Over time, it can spread to create large colonies.
