Helianthus x multiflorus 'Capenoch Star'

Many-Flowered Sunflower

Certainly the most handsome of the perennial sunflowers, a favorite of our
good friend Dr. Richard Lighty. Clean deep green leaves give way to large,
single, bright yellow flowers that are reminiscent of annual sunflowers with
their wide centers. Refreshing and attractive...especially to butterflies and bees.
A cross between H. annuus and H. decapetalus.

Prefers moist soils in full sun, but is tolerant of drought and light shade. Provide fertilizer.May be propagated by cuttings or division. When
flowering is complete, cut foliage back. Helianthus can be quite invasive. Best
utilized in the back of a border garden to accent lower growing perennials.
