The sunflower (Helianthus) is the majestic queen of summer flowers. Is there any other flower which reminds us of the sun and the summer like the sunflower?

Perennials in warm, sunny tones capture the spirit of summer and make for an uplifted mood in the garden. Luminous yellow, vigorous orange, and fiery red — these are real power colors that coneflowers (Rudbeckia), false sunflower (Heliopsis), Helenium, and perennial sunflowers (such as Helianthus microcephalus) come clothed in.
