Wild Weeds – Weed of the Month
Narrowleaf Sunflower, also often called the Swamp Sunflower, is a native and common sunflower in Florida. You can find this plant naturally occurring in marshes, wet flatwoods, and roadside ditches throughout north and central Florida. This short-lived perennial blooms primarily in October and November in dense colonies.
Narrowleaf sunflowers attract pollinators, particularly bees and butterflies, and provides tasty seeds for birds. These showy blooms are relatively large, some reaching diameters of 3 inches. Plants grow from 4 to 6 feet tall.
