Helianthus 'First Light' Plants

Helianthus Salicifolius

This Helianthus provides a real explosion of golden yellow flowers. Its dramatic 3-foot height and easy-to-grow nature makes this a superior selection for your late summer and fall garden.

'First Light' Helianthus will be blanketed in flowers in the late summer and into the fall when most other Helianthus are past. The flowers form on upright, self-supporting stems but instead of the typical tall sunflower, this plant forms a nice, compact clump of fuzzy, linear leaves topping out just above 3 feet.

For fall planting, we also offer the shorter 'Low Down' Helianthus which grows to 18".
Features
Zone: 5 - 9

Size: 4' H x 3' S

Light: Full to Part Sun

Bloom: Yellow, Late Summer - Fall

Tips: As your other annuals and perennials begin to fade, 'First Light' explodes into bloom in late September and early October! This happy 'explosion' will fill your garden with three-inch sunflower-like flowers. The golden-yellow ray flowers surround a chocolate-brown central eye and persist for several weeks. When in flower, the plant resembles a small Christmas tree aglow with bright yellow lights.
