Adams Fairacre Farms

Tuscan Gold is heat tolerant and will tolerate somewhat dry soils. While deadheading may encourage additional blooming it isn’t strictly necessary for a long bloom season. The breakthrough here is an easy flowering Heliopsis with a shorter plant size, outstanding garden performance and disease resistance. A long known great garden plant with good manners and a long flowering season, also makes a great cut flower! A showy perennial with sunny yellow flowers that’s perfect for your sun garden! Forms a compact, upright habit with dark green leaves.
