Helianthus salicifolius 'First Light' PP13150

Swamp Sunflower

'First Light' Swamp Sunflower has a solid mass of bright yellow daisy-like flowers in September, which make an amazing fall show. Butterflies enjoy the flowers when in bloom and birds benefit from the seeds in winter.  This selection comes by way of New Zealand via Blooms of Bressingham®. Joe Marano of Marano's Garden Center in Fort Washington, PA first showed us this plant.

PRN Preferred:  Has a compact habit and blooms very late in the summer.
