Heliopsis

The genus name Heliopsis comes from the Greek for “sunflower”, and heliotrope comes from the Greek for “sun.” This refers to the flower’s appearance, which mimics that of a sunflower and changes colours in the fall.

Heliopsis species grow well in sunny habitats such as prairies and even dry prairies where few other plants can grow. They are also useful for reseeding disturbed areas.

Heliopsis species produce multibranched inflorescences and produce lots of nectar and pollen. And they produce seeds that grow on long stalks that develop into flowers.

Some species are used by foragers who gather them after they have been cut for hay. Heliopsis belongs to the sunflower family Asteraceae and is a genus of annual plants native to North America.

Most species produce yellow, orange, or red flowers, while some produce blue or purple flowers. Heliopsis plants are not particularly sensitive to frost, so they do not set seeds in cold climates.

They typically grow in sandy or rocky soils or disturbed areas such as roadsides. The flowers of Heliopsis are large and showy, with yellow or golden petals.

The ideal addition to your garden for brightening up the summer with a profusion of lovely blooms.
