Sunstruck Heliopsis (Heliopsis helianthoides) (PP25,524) boasts bright blooms in a compact form for wildlife-loving gardeners. Unlike many of its siblings, its compact size works beautifully in the front of garden beds. Deadheading those deep golden blooms will keep the plant blooming for weeks. The creamy variegated foliage makes this a great choice for eye-catching containers. Pollinators love the open flowers, and birds will feed on the seeds, so leave standing over the winter season. Heliopsis is a short-lived perennial native to eastern and central North America. It is a fast-growing plant for sunny, average soils and will tolerate poor soils. Pair with other sun lovers like Russian Sage or Cosmos for an airy, natural effect.
