Few plants are as attractive as Narrow-Leaf Sunflower when it is in full bloom. Hundreds of eye-popping golden daisies on tall stems flood the garden with color during October. Our friend Kevin Gragg tells us how neighbors walking by his yard in fall always want to know the name of this perennial. Native in Oklahoma, the eastern and southeastern US, a number of plants-people refer to it as one of the finest fall-flowering plants for the south. Although it is sometimes called Swamp Sunflower, it doesn’t need boggy conditions to thrive in the garden.
