Horticultural Notes

3-4’ x 3-5’          Bush Sunflower is a partially deciduous shrub (evergreen if given water) with narrowly ovate, or diamond shaped green leaves. Large, solitary bright yellow daisy flowers grow on slender stems.

This is an easy plant for the native garden, sometimes too easy, seeding itself with vigor: you see it planted along our freeways.
