(USPP 13,197 expired) Who needs genetic engineering or nuclear power plant accidents when you've got Mother Nature? Yes, we're talking about the hot, incredible shrinking sunflower. Imagine taking our native swamp sunflower, Helianthus angustifolius, and shrinking it from 8' tall to 1' tall. The leaves are still intact as are the flowers, it's just now you can plant it in the rock garden instead of the back of the border. In October, the 20" wide clump is smothered with large, yellow sunflower blossoms. This outrageous deer-resistant introduction is just waiting for a place in even the smallest of gardens...get yours today!
