"Helianthus salicifolius ‘Low Down’ is basically a scaled-down version (shorter plant, shorter leaves and smaller flowers) of Helianthus ‘First Light’. It produces a compact clump of foliage to only 12” tall by 16-20” wide. Foliage is covered in fall (September–October) with a profuse bloom of 2-2.5” diameter sunflowers with golden yellow rays and brown center disks. Narrow, hairy, linear leaves (to 3” long). Parents of this patented cultivar are unpatented H. salicifolia cultivars ‘Golden Pyramid’ and ‘Autumn Glory’." -- Missouri Botanical Gardens An introduction of Blooms of Bressingham. U.S. Plant Patent #13,197 issued November 5, 2002.
