Garden Candy™ Sunshine Daydream Helianthus
Helianthus x multiflorus 'Sunshine Daydream'
|Description||A gem for the mid summer garden! Fuss-free perennial with profuse, deep golden-yellow, dahlia-like blooms on tall, sturdy, deep black stems. The deep green foliage resists mildew unlike others, and performs remarkably through summer heat. Perfect for middle to back of a border or cutting garden.|
|Watering||Water regularly- weekly, or more often in extreme heat.|
|Blooms||Summer to Early Fall|
|Mature Size||Reaches 5 to 6 ft. tall, 2 to 4 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Use en masse along the middle of the perennial border to create a stunning burst of midsummer color. Helianthus is a staple of the classic cutting garden; the long, leafless stems lend themselves beautifully to seasonal flower arrangements. Plant in a children's or butterfly or wildlife garden, where the blooms will be visited by a menagerie of beneficial nectar-seekers, and finches will flock to its dried seedheads for late-season sustenance.|
|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Care||Grows easily in average, moist but well-drained soils. Tough and adaptable. Water regularly first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system; tolerates some drought when well-established. Cut back at end of season, or leave seed heads for birds to enjoy.|
