Heliopsis heliantoides / False Sunflower / Heliopsis faux-hélianthe 

False Sunflower (Heliopsis helianthoides) is long blooming (2 months!) and attractive to many pollinators! This easy easy-to-grow, the non-demanding plant is actually not not considered a true sunflower (Helianthus sp.) because both the ray and disk florets of its flowerheads can produce seeds.

Heliopsis helianthoides is a good choice for dry sites, clay soil or very hands-off Gardners. 

Heliopsis helianthoides looks great in patches with shorter blooms in the front. They can eventually reach 100-150 cm high. If you find your plants getting straggly after years 2-3, you can cut them back in early summer for tidier blooms later in summer and into fall. 

The nectar and pollen of the flowers attract various insects, including honeybees, bumblebees, little carpenter bees digger bees, and butterflies.
