This rare giant perennial has soft, velvety leaves and stems, and is best known for its sunny yellow flowers with broad, orange centers. Unlike true sunflowers that usually feature one large flower per plant, Mexican Sunflowers continuously support hundreds of blooms per plant from spring until the first winter frost.
This extended blooming season brings lots of wildlife activity; from butterflies that are fond of the nectar in new flowers, to local birds that dine on seeds that develop after a flower has faded. ‘Goldylocks‘ is a cutting-grown cultivar that was selected by Civano Nursery for its uniquely uniform growth habit, outstanding heat tolerance, and impressive flower power!
