Full Sun Part Sun

This item cannot be purchased online but is available in our stores.


A beautiful, carefree perennial. ‘Summer Sun’ puts on a show of semi-double, 2-3″ wide, bright gold flowers all summer long. Their strong stems make them great for cutting. This variety of heliopsis is very heat tolerant, making it the best cultivar for southern zones.

Heliopsis have traditionally been an excellent tall perennial for the middle or back of the flower border. It has a bushy, well-branched form and glossy, deep green, triangular leaves – a real workhorse in the garden! Use this plant in combination containers, as a cut flower, or to attract butterflies to your garden.
