Gorgeous mahogany red sunflowers 

with dark chocolate-black centers. 

Well-branched 5-7' tall plants carry many blooms with strong stems.BOTANICAL NAME:Helianthus annuus


May start in flats 3-4 weeks before last frost & transplant, but better to start directly in good, non-acid, well drained garden soil after danger of frost is past. Prefers a light loam. Does best if well-dug. Needs full sun, for best display, fertilize it well, lime if necessary, and make sure it doesn't get dry enough to wilt. Stakes and string around the edges and criss-crossing the center of the bed will help prevent the plants from falling over as the heads mature.GROW BIOINTENSIVE® CULTURAL INFORMATION: Annual/Height 6'/Spacing 24"

Colorful and productive

These sunflowers are beautiful in the garden. The colors are bright and showy. I do a lot of photography and they are perfect for fine art photography. Germination was very good and the birds loved the seeds. I will definitely buy them again.
