24+ Seeds of Beach Sunflower, Dune Sunflower, Beach Daisy, (Helianthus debilis subsp. vestitus / West Coast Dune Sunflower). Beach sunflower is a butterfly-attracting Florida native that’s perfect for hot, dry sites, including coastal areas. Many gardeners like to use it as a colorful and drought-resistant, low-growing, spreading groundcover. This is a spreading perennial plant that also reseeds, creating a larger clump over time. It blooms almost year-round with two-inch, daisy- or sunflower-like flowers that have yellow petals and brown centers.
For those in coastal areas this plant is excellent because of its tolerance for salts in the soil and its ability to handle high levels of salt spray. Once established, beach sunflower is drought tolerant and can get by with little to no irrigation. Over-irrigation can actually slow growth and cause your plant to decline.
