Plant Description

A common wildflower in open woods throughout the entire eastern US, Woodland Sunflower provides nice 2", pale yellow flowers from mid-summer into fall in the shade. This is useful. Growing 2 to 5 feet tall, just give it average soil and some shade, and once established, it is quite drought tolerant. Over time, it may naturalize into colonies from its creeping rhizomes. This would be pretty along a woodland path.
