This native wildflower’s seed provides vital food for birds, and attracts a variety of pollinators with its nectar. Named for the fact that its leaves always grow facing east and west with their tips pointed north, Compass Plant prefers full sun and can grow up to 9’ tall. Its prolific yellow blooms, long bloom time, and statuesque height make it the perfect choice for a larger prairie, meadow or the back of a garden border. All of the seed we handle at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow. Perennial.
