General Information: 

Heliopsis, also known as false sunflower, is a stunning perennial plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. With its vibrant yellow or orange flowers and interesting foliage, heliopsis adds a burst of color and visual interest to any garden.

Heliopsis thrives in full sun, so make sure to choose a location in your garden that receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. This will ensure optimal growth and abundant blooms.

Heliopsis prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Before planting, amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve its fertility and drainage. A slightly acidic to neutral pH level (around 6.0-7.0) is ideal for heliopsis.

While heliopsis is relatively drought-tolerant once established, it's important to provide regular watering during the initial growth phase. Water deeply and thoroughly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

To promote healthy growth and abundant blooms, fertilize your heliopsis plants in early spring and again in midsummer. Use a balanced, slow-release fertilizer or a granular fertilizer specifically formulated for flowering perennials. Follow the package instructions for application rates.

Heliopsis is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for common garden pests like aphids and slugs. If necessary, treat infestations with organic pest control methods.
