The cup-plant is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to eastern and central North America. Its flowers look like a sunflower, but there is the added bonus that they grow on stalks up to 6 ft tall in the summer. They tolerate a range of soil conditions but do best with more water, and need 6-8 hours of sunlight to bloom properly. They do best if planted in the fall, as in our Group B plant list.
They are a great attractor of bees and butterflies who love the flowers, and also birds who come in fall to eat the seeds.
Price is per 10 seeds; these are a bit harder to find, hence the slightly higher cost. Free shipping within Ontario.
