(Helianthus annuus) Bred by Dr. Kovács of Budapest, Hungary. Beautiful
soft primrose-yellow petals with rounded tips, dark
brown central disk. Plants grow 5' tall; many side
branches produce 5-6" flowers. One of the best for
cut flowers, which can last 7-10 days. For longer
lasting bouquets of flowers, be sure to pick heads
that are just about to open. Annual, 70 days.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors after last frost. Sunflowers
prefer full sun to light shade and well-drained rich
soil. Provide support for tall plants.
