We love sunflowers! They are easy to grow, make a huge statement in your garden, attract birds, bees, butterflies, and onlookers. They also make great cut flowers. This variety of sunflower starts out yellow and develops beautiful plum-colored accents. Because they are so easy to grow, they are great for beginners or child gardeners in your life. Singular blooms on individual stems (as opposed to branching varieties), pollenless (means they don’t drip pollen once cut and stain your linens).
SEED COUNT: 40 Seeds
Planting instructions: Sow seeds ½ inch deep. Space the groups 18-24 inches apart.
Sun: Full Sun Germination (days till sprouts appear): 4-8 days Life Cycle: Annual Days to maturity: 50 days Spacing: 18-24" Height: 4-6 feet
Tips: plant sunflowers in an open space so they can access and follow the sun. Be aware that because these grow tall, they can shade other plants around them. Plan accordingly. If you plan on using these for cut flowers, consider planting in succession to have a longer harvest time. Let one head go to seed to collect for bird feed or for planting next season.
