With its big yellow flowers, the Sunstruck False Sunflower makes a bold statement wherever it is grown. Botanically named Heliopsis helianthoides 'Sunstruck', this plant is often better known as an ox-eye daisy. Sunstruck develops variegated silver-and-green foliage upon which its glorious yellow blooms shine above. This perennial is a great value, as not only is its foliage attractive enough on its own but it can bloom from early summer for months on end. 

With its compact and upright form, the Sunstruck False Sunflower is ideal for growing in the front of a bed or border, or for lining a path. Being pollinator friendly, this heliopsis will attract bees and butterflies into the garden and is thankfully usually ignored by deer. Apart from some deadheading and an annual prune, this perennial is easy to grow and care for. Sunstruck False Sunflower is great for adding some impact to the garden or for using as a cut flower to brighten the indoors.

Sunstruck False Sunflower Care

This Sunstruck False Sunflower is happiest when grown in full sun, although it will also tolerate some partial shade. An unfussy plant, it prefers free-draining soil but will tolerate most conditions and soil types. Frequent watering is needed to help this plant become established, and in hot and dry spells thereafter. Extra fertilization is rarely required unless the soil it is grown on is exceptionally poor. 

To encourage the Sunstruck False Sunflower to keep blooming all summer long, its faded blooms should be removed. In late winter or early spring, the spent foliage can be cut down to 2-3 inches above soil level to make way for the new season’s growth. If grown in partial shade, this plant may flop and require a support to remain upright. 

Sunstruck False Sunflower Spacing

In the right growing conditions, this false sunflower can grow to a height of 14-16 inches and a spread of 20-24 inches. To create a mass of color, Sunstruck False Sunflower can be planted out in a group with a spacing of 18-24 inches between plants.

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.
