Sunshine Daydream is a perennial sunflower that blooms in mid to late summer. The lower petals on the double flowers recurve toward the stem, making them look like golden yellow dahlias. This is a big plant, reaching 5 to 6 feet in height, so choose the planting site accordingly. The mildew-resistant foliage makes a pretty backdrop for shorter perennials and can be used as a screen to hide an unsightly view. The plant prefers full sun and moist, well-drained soils but it is quite drought tolerant once established.
