This 2014 AAS Bedding Plant Winner is a superb sunflower for containers or gardens. You will love the large number of flowers each plant produces – up to twenty or more 15 cm (6″) wide flowers per plant in three successive bloom periods. Plants are naturally dwarf and compact and very early flowering. Ideal for the patio, mass planting in beds or for the annual border. Note: Seeds are treated with the fungicide Thiram.
How to Grow
30 seed/gram Easy to grow. In late May, choose a sunny site with well draining soil and sow seed about 6-12 mm (1/4-1/2″) deep and 7.5-10 cm (3-4″) apart. Thin or transplant seedlings to 30-45 cm (12-18″) apart. Seed can be started 2-3 weeks early indoors using plantable peat pots or Jiffy 7’s at 21 C (70 F). Harden off seedlings then transplant to the garden or a container in fully sunny site. Keep plants evenly watered and fertilize twice during the season with a granular 15-5-15 or water soluble equivalent.
