Helianthus schweinitzii, or Schweinitz's Sunflower, is a rare plant, native only to a small region in North and South Carolina. It is a perennial that grows in dryish soils, often along roadsides, and sometimes also in open meadows and open woodland clearings. It seems to require open areas to grow well and persist.
