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.
