FRIDAY FLOWERS: HELIANTHUS LOVE

These cheerful, bright, sunny flowers start to flower in September.
Helianthus angustifolius

There are many varieties of Helianthus, but these may be my favorite! Mine were gifted to me by a friend in the village about four years ago. It took almost two years until they spread and I knew they were happy. Now, by the end of August, the 6-8′ stems are filled with flowers. Yes, they are tall! Mine are set against the house and provide a perfect “screen” for the siding!
