Western Sunflower is a great plant for attracting wildlife--especially bees, butterflies, and birds. In prairies or meadows, it helps create uneven heights; this is beneficial to ground-nesting birds that will also feed on the nutritious seeds. It can grow in very dry conditions in poor soil. Branching roots and spreading rhizomes make it a good soil holder in full sun.
