Sunflowers, Helianthus annuus, are the easiest flower to grow. While we do not begrudge the cheerful and iconic yellow-petaled varieties, we are loving the many different shades of these unexpected Sunflowers.
The ProCut Red Sunflower has rich burgundy petals that fade into an almost-black center.
Planting conditions: Not too picky, tolerant of a variety of soil types, and happiest in full sun.
Care: Once they are happy and established in your garden, they are drought-tolerant, but will bloom more with more water.
Blooms: Single stem variety with no pollen, will bloom in the Summer and makes an excellent cut flower. Will sometimes send up secondary blooms.
Annual: May re-seed if left in the garden, but second year plants are often not true to form.
Zone: 2-11. Non-toxic. Good cut flower.
Ships: as 3 plants in 2" diameter pots, in the Spring.
Flat rate $10 shipping no matter how many plants you buy.
