Balsamorhiza sagittata

Oregon Sunflower

This perennial sunflower does best in its native West, especially in semi-arid regions where its drought-tolerance is an asset. Deep, woody roots are usually topped by a single rosette of foliage, or sometimes crowned by short branches, each ending in a rosette of foliage. Because of their deep roots, plants do not transplant well. Start from seed where plants will grow. Balsam Root is slow-growing and may not flower for several years.
