Narrowleaf Sunflower

Helianthus angustifolius

Multiple erect, tall stems lined with coarse, dark green, narrow opposite leaves and topped with multiple flowers. Flowers have yellow petals with a brown/black center, about 2" across and multiple blooms form on each stem. Small seeds that birds love form in the center of the spent flowers just like their much larger hybrid cousins. Can be an aggressive spreader. Great for cut flowers and garden color.
