Product Details

A False Sunflower with flair—each flower head has a red eye that sparkles against the surrounding yellow petals. Heliopsis helianthoides 'Prairie Sunset' plants grow quickly to form tall clumps that don't flop, are disease free and happy in soils dry or moist. A perfect choice for today's gardens where there's more color but less water. Try 'Prairie Sunset' alongside Grasses or tall Asters at the back of the border or in a meadow setting. PP 13,779

This genus is native to North America and all its species are hardy and vigorous Sunflower look-alikes. If you like clear, bright golden yellow flowers, deep green foliage, and zero care, you will love the varieties below. They thrive in full sun and well-drained, even dry soil.




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.


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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Dozens of blooms year 1

I planted a bare root plant in early spring. It’s now early August: the plant is about 16-20 inches tall, full of blooms, constantly visited by bumblebees, and thriving with minimal care (remembering to water). I’m on the waitlist for more.

This was a wonderful addition to my garden. It thrived in full sun with little care. We enjoyed a terrific display the very first year. Total winner!
