Product Description

A superior selection of Helianthus, or common sunflower, First Light reaches a pleasing height of just three to four feet. Unlike its extremely tall parent, Helianthus First Light puts its blooms at the right height for viewing. A bright play on a native cultivar, First Light is extremely floriferous, producing hundreds of golden yellow flowers in late summer. Thanks to its native roots, this sun-seeking plant is highly drought-tolerant once established, and, if protected over winter, can be hardy to Zone 6. Attracts butterflies and bees, and, if the flower heads are left on, they will provide late-season seed for birds. Drought tolerant in well-drained soils. Helianthus salicifolius 'First Light' PP13150
