With its clusters of petite golden flowers providing a splash of sunlight to any yard, Heart Leaved Meadow Parsnip, is an ideal choice to brighten any landscape. Reaching a maximum height of 18 to 24 inches and a spread of 12 to 18 inches, this showy cut flower blooms from May until June. Complemented by lustrous emerald, heart-shaped foliage, this hybrid offers verdant color year-round. Bred by American Beauties Native Plants, this flower not only provides pleasure when collected alive as a cut flower but also long after when dried. And? A pollinator’s friend, butterflies and bees will be buzzing about its scrumptious nectar for weeks.

Heart Leaved Meadow Parsnip, otherwise known as Zizia aptera, Heart-Leaf Golden Alexander, Prairie Golden Alexander, Meadow Zizia, and Zizia, is an original from North America. It is a compact perennial that grows with an upright, mounding habit. Disease, deer, and drought resistant, you don’t have to worry about multiple threats whether they be fungus, critters, or lack of rainfall. Adding low maintenance to its long list of advantages, this wildflower is a particularly perfect choice for any busy newbie gardener who wants to brighten up a landscape.  

Heart Leaved Meadow Parsnip Care

While Heart Leaved Meadow Parsnip can tolerate a variety of soils, it thrives in loamy, sandy, well-draining soil that has a pH from 6.0 to 8.0. Plant this herbaceous flowering plant in a spot that gets full to partial sun. Tolerating drought and nutrient-depleted soil, this wildflower has only average water needs and a minimal to no need to fertilize. Water well during its first year. 

To encourage bushier growth, pinch Heart Leaved Meadow Parsnip before these wildflowers bud. Then, to prolong the flowering season, deadhead spent flowers as they appear. Trim dead, diseased, and/or damaged stems and leaves throughout the season when necessary.

Heart Leaved Meadow Parsnip Spacing

These plants work well grouped together in a drift or mass planting. Grouping also helps pollinators browse more easily. For mass planting, space these perennials approximately 12 inches apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
