Oregon Sunshine Seeds

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, planting just below the surface. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 60-90 days before sowing. Thin or transplant seedlings.

Growing: This plant adapts well to areas with dry, rocky or sandy soil. Water seedlings until they become established. Mature plants tolerate drought well, and prefer dry soil. Excess moisture or poorly draining soil can cause disease. This plant develops quickly, blooming in their first season of growth. If blooming decreases, cut the plant back for new growth and blossoms. This plant spreads quickly if allowed to self-seed; to prevent this, remove the flowers after they have finished blooming but before the seed matures. This plant attracts butterflies and bees.

Harvesting: For fresh flowers, cut long stems of flowers that have just opened and place them in water immediately; strip the leaves that will fall below the water.

Seed Saving: After flowering, the plant will produce small seed heads with mature black seed. Harvest the heads as soon as they ripen, since they soon drop their seed. Remove the heads and spread them out to dry, then thresh them to separate the seed from the husk. Store the seed in a cool, dry place.

Found in the western United States, this bright wildflower truly brings sunshine in its wake. The drought-tolerant plant springs up in dry and rocky locations in the wild but can be naturalized to most garden settings.

This bright wildflower can be found in the western United States, springing up in dry and rocky locations because of its excellent drought tolerance. Its common name of “wooly sunflower” refers to the white, hairy surface of the leaves, which conserves moisture and reflects the heat of the sun. The genus name “Eriophyllum” comes from Greek words meaning “wooly leaf,” while the species name “lanatum” means “covered with long wooly hair.” Lewis and Clark first described this flower at Camp Chopunnish, documenting their find on the 6th of June, 1806, near Idaho’s Clearwater River.
