  • Produces many smaller, lovely pale yellow blooms.
  • Easy to grow bushy plants for borders and cutting.

Similar to the Sunflower Hallo, these flowers have paler yellow petals than their counterparts and dark chocolate centres in contrast. A fantastic flower for pollination and also very suitable for attracting bees and butterflies, they prefer a full sun habitat to be grown in. Flowering takes place between the months of July and October, when planted in the early to mid spring. The dead flower heads can be left to feed wild birds in autumn.

Growing From Seed

Sow 1 week after final spring frost, 13mm (½”) deep, 10cm
(4”) apart, in well cultivated soil. Keep soil moist. Germination
takes 7-21 days. Thin to final plant spacing when seedlings
are well established. Can be started indoors up to 2 weeks
before final frost. If started indoors, sow 2 seeds per pot and
thin to strongest plant. Harden off before transplanting to
garden.
