Ballerina False Sunflower
Heliopsis helianthoides 'Ballerina'
Synonyms: Rough Heliopsis, Orange Sunflower
This seems to be a really nice cultivar of False Sunflower. We haven’t tried growing it but I love having the regular species in the garden. It is one of the last perennials to have a really solid bloom this time of the year. Our patch of Heliopsis has begun to spread but hasn’t warranted control yet. The plants have a nice way of growing around and through things without being annoying.
I know its Monday but I wanted to add a nice flower as a thank you to all the people that have been following and commenting on this blog. You can see it is a beautiful fancy Dahlia that could have easily earned a post of its own.
