The largest flowers we've ever seen on a Heliopsis (4″ across), and the closest yet to clear yellow. They are semidouble, full but not excessively so. 'Venus' was bred in Germany for cut-flower use.
We highly recommend you put a plant or three in a border and keep a stand in the cutting garden. This superb variety made its American debut in the White Flower Farm catalog.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
WHEN WE SHIP
We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery.

Santa Fe Gal from Litchfield, CT
I love this flower. I bought one two years ago from WFF and it produced strong, hearty, gorgeous blooms all through the summer. Alas, I lost the plant last year to voles (I have to find out how to guard against these little pests; they also took out all my lilies) and was sick when they were all out last year. So, I'm so glad they are back for this season. I'm not a great gardener, but they do extremely well and make you look that you are.
Heliopsis requires full sun and well-drained soil; tolerates dry conditions.
