Summer Sun False Sunflower



Summer Sun produces a seemingly endless supply of large, semi-double, bright gold flowers on sturdy stems that seldom need staking. A hybrid of the native species but better performing, it is attractive to nectar seekers and ideal for cutting. A real workhorse in the garden but it also does well in containers.
