Eriophyllum lanatum. Height to 30-60cm (12-24″). Also known as Oregon Sunshine. This native Common Woolly Sunflower is not a real sunflower, but blooms from May to August with intensely yellow 5cm (2″) wide flowers that rise above silvery grey, woolly foliage. It prefers full sun, but will bloom in partial shade. Common Woolly Sunflowers work well in containers, in the border, and in alpine rock gardens. Their spread is very gradual, and they are quite ornamental at all times of the year. This plant is very attractive to pollinators and beneficial insects, so it deserves a place in every organic garden. Hardy to Zone 5.
