Always a classily beautiful addition to any garden! Sunny and abundant flowers to greet your flying visitors! Amazing for new gardeners due there ease of care.
This beautiful bright yellow flower is loved by all in your garden and may even be munched on by fuzzy and feathered visitors. Native to the central US it can usually be kept as a perennial or as a re-seeding annual. Since these flowers started life on earth as a wildflower they are very undemanding in their care. Deadheading and the occasional dividing of plants that grow too close are the biggest worries with this low-maintenance plant! Fertilizing can be detrimental to their growth so a little compost is usually best. Soil conditions are also fairly lax as long as it's in a well-draining full sun location.
To save seeds for the next year, collect dried flower heads. Separate seeds from the black center of the dead flower. Store in a dry airtight container after seeds fully dry and keep in the refrigerator for 4 weeks. Sow directly outdoors after the last frost or sow indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost.
