  • Appearance: Woodland sunflower typically grows to a height of 3 to 6 feet (0.9 to 1.8 meters). It has lance-shaped leaves that are rough to the touch and serrated at the edges. The plant produces bright yellow, daisy-like flowers with a prominent central disk, which gives it the appearance of a classic sunflower.

  • Habitat: This wildflower is often found in woodland settings, along woodland edges, and in open areas with partial shade. It is adaptable to various soil types, making it a versatile addition to naturalistic and garden landscapes.

  • Late Summer Blooms: Helianthus divaricatus typically blooms in late summer to early fall, adding a burst of color to shaded and semi-shaded areas when many other plants are fading. The flowers are a valuable nectar source for pollinators like bees and butterflies during this season.

  • Rhizomatous Growth: Woodland sunflower spreads through rhizomes, which are underground stems that produce new shoots and plants. This growth habit can create clumps of sunflowers, making it a useful plant for naturalizing and stabilizing soil in certain areas.

  • Wildlife Value: The seeds of Helianthus divaricatus are a food source for birds and small mammals. Additionally, the dense growth of this sunflower provides cover and habitat for wildlife, including nesting sites for birds and shelter for insects.

Care Instructions

Different plants have different watering needs. Check the soil moisture by inserting your finger about an inch into the soil. If it feels dry, water the plant until the water drains from the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.
