Our colorful, easy-to-grow mix features beautiful sunflowers with rich gold, bright yellow, burgundy-red and cheerful bi-colored flower faces. These large flowers, on tall branching stems, make a wonderful display and offer armfuls of bright bouquets. The blooms attract butterflies, while birds enjoy the ripe seeds.
Gardener's Notes: In late spring, when outdoor temperatures are evenly above 50'F both day and night, sow seed 1/2" deep and 6" apart in full sun in fertile well-drained soil. Keep seedbed moist. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to 12" apart so plants have room to grow and produce the largest flowers. Sunflowers will tolerate dry conditions, but grow best when watered regularly throughout the season. A great choice for children's gardens or to make a beautiful screen or background.
