Bleeding Hearts Heliopsis


Heliopsis helianthoides, commonly known as False Sunflower or Oxeye, is a delightful perennial plant belonging to the Asteraceae family. It is native to North America and is admired for its bright and cheerful flowers, resembling small sunflowers.

To cultivate Heliopsis helianthoides successfully, plant it in well-draining soil with good moisture retention. This plant thrives in full sun conditions and can tolerate some light shade. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist. Deadheading spent flowers will encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance.

At maturity, Heliopsis helianthoides typically reaches a height of 3 to 5 feet (90 to 150 cm) and spreads about 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 cm) in width. It forms a bushy and upright clump, making it an excellent choice for the back of borders or as a background plant in mixed perennial beds. Heliopsis helianthoides is hardy in USDA Zones 3 to 9.

Non-toxic to humans, cats, and dogs.
