Life Cycle
Heliopsis helianthoides, Sweet Sunshine is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Struggled last year Purchased last spring and transplanted in my backyard. By August the plant was very spindly and had no blooms. The multiple echinacea nearby were fine so I feel there was plenty of sun and fine soil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Numerous Blooms 1st Year I originally bought 6 bare root plants for our subdivisions entrance. The neighborhood decided to get a landscaper to handle the front beds. I put these in my own beds for color. This was the first year and all 6 plants are thriving and I can't get over how many blooms are on each plant. when they are back in stock I plan on ordering more. Unbelievable plant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large, long-lasting yellow blooms Bought these without really knowing what to expect and I've been very pleasantly surprised! Have two plants and they are both loaded with large yellow blooms. The highlight of the garden this year!
