A terrific alternative to the lamp-post sunflowers which try and hit the chimney, it has a multitude of soft yellow flowers set against the veined, dark green leaves from the end of summer to mid-autumn. It gets off to a slow start in late August and early September, but quickly revs up adding a mellow touch. Provide stakes to support the stems. Occasionally divide to keep it young and vigorous. It has been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society.

I can't find it anywhere either - help, please. I'd like seeds, but will buy plants if I have to.
After seeing Monty Don move his Helianthus 'Lemon Queen' last night, I felt the urge to get myself some seeds so that I can grow some next year, but I am struggling to find any anywhere!
A fantastic Perennial - so trouble free! You can get it from Gardenbypost.com's Webshop along with a number of other Helianthus species. I have grown this with Eupatorium maculatum 'Atropurpureum' and they make such a good combination!
