Proven Winners

This everblooming sunflower is built on a well branched bush-like habit that is perfect for the back of the bed, as an annual screen or along a fence. The blooms are about 4” across and do not need to be deadheaded to continue blooming, but can be groomed for tidiness, and also makes a great cutflower. This plant blooms several weeks longer than similar sunflowers due to its semi indeterminate to determinate habit. Great for pollinators and will pump blooms all season and well into the fall for a great seasonal pop of color.

Maintenance Notes

Great in average and rich soils, but also capable of growing in poorer soils and tolerant of dry conditions once established. A controlled release fertilizer application at the time of planting should be sufficient for the summer, however, a second application of controlled release fertilizer applied in mid-summer should increase bloom number and keep the plant producing longer.  A great home cut flower.

Uses Notes

Great in landscapes and containers. It is well-suited to growing at the back of garden beds or along fences.  Makes a great cutflower.
