Helianthus x multiflorus 'Flore Pleno' is a robust plant produces double yellow flowers throughout the summer. Its deep green foliage is an excellent screen or foil to showcase small plants. Flowers of Helianthus x mult. 'Flore Pleno' are scattered all throughout this "green wall" which makes it an excellent choice for the back of your border.

This is a good plant for cut flowers and blooms for 4 weeks or more. It can be planted in containers and attracts butterflies. Prefers average, neutral to slightly alkaline soil. Well drained soil is good for overwintering, but give Helianthus a good soaking if August begins to overpower. Can be divided in spring every 3-4 years. Cut back by one-half in early to midsummer to prevent staking.

  2. multiflorus 'Flore Pleno' indeed. Such a congested centre. I wonder what it would be for wool dying.

  3. Lovely cheerful daisy - must look for this one.

  4. You people from Down Under are inciting extreme jealousy in me for the varieties of flowers you are showcasing here. Especially as I sit and watch the sun come up on 7 inches of snow and -7 degree temperatures. i need to search for a variety i can grow here. Thanks for the idea.

    1. I have these in snowy upstate NY and they are incredible! The spread year after year and I've transplanted them all over the yard. Try some for cold climes and see if they work for you. I got mine from my son and just recently discovered what they were!

  5. Estou esperando a época de semear minhas sementes.
