Description: Summer in the prairie can be a parade of yellow composite flowers! Often the first to show is the Heliopsis. It is possible to hike from a fairly moist, almost wetland situation to the driest south facing hillside and False Sunflower can be found all along the way. Unlike true sunflowers and most asters, both its disk and ray flowers are capable of producing seed. It blooms profusely through the summer on thin stems above the foliage. Easily grown and quick to develop, False Sunfloweris a short-lived perennial.
