'Autumn Gold' is a compact, mound-forming selection of willow-leaved sunflower that features bright yellow flowers. This cultivar originated from self-pollinated seed of the plant H. salicifolius 'Low Down'. A dense carpet of 2" diameter blooms with yellow rays and dark brown center cones cover the plant from late summer to frost. Mature clumps will reach up to 2' tall and spread to fill a similar area.
