Best Uses

    Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Lemon Queen:

    I selected this plant because the description indicated that it was easy to grow. I planted two of them in sunny spots where grass grows fairly well, but insects (that I was never able to observe) ate every leaf as fast as each leaf emerged. This is not a problem I have with any other perennial in my gardens.
