Bidens laevis
"Joaquin Sunflower"

Bidens laevis Joaquin Sunflower

THRIVING IN HEAVY CLAY this widespread American native perennial is a fantastic bee, butterfly & bird magnet! Naturally variable in height, our plants are clones of a big, bushy plant to 5’ tall & 4’ across. Very showy in bloom with a profusion of 3” bright yellow daisies from late Summer thru Fall. Nice looking prior to bloom time too, with its densely branching upright form & pretty slender emerald green foliage. Though it’s often found along waterways  we’ve found that it’s happy as a clam planted in heavy, non-draining clay with only occasional water to keep it from drying out. Goes deciduous in Winter & returns in late Spring.
