Helianthus salicifolius 'Autumn Gold' (willowleaf perennial sunflower) is a hardy and drought tolerant perennial once established. An excellent perennial in the fall garden instead of Mums. This maintenance-free perennial is covered in bright golden yellow flowers from September until frost.
The narrow, dark green willow-like leaves form into a tight mound giving a tidy shrub-like appearance from spring through summer before it erupts into color in the fall. (Photo courtesy of Darwin Perennials)
