Not to be confused with Helianthus. In this perennial the flower centres are less conspicuous.


Excellent border plants, very strong and reliable. Prolonged flowering season; the flowers are yellow or orange.


Not fussy as regards soil; however, it must be adequately damp.


By division or from cuttings.
