Summer Sunflowers

Sunflowers are ready for planting from 4″ starts or from seed.

We have several varieties to choose from with a range of heights and colors.   Sunflowers provide a bright smile to the back of the flower bed. Plant the tallest types from seed – Russian Mammoth or Grey-stripe is an overall favorite.

Our greatest selection in 4″ pots include multi-branching varieties that can keep blooming through the summer, especially if spent flower heads are removed.

Excellent planted in groups at the back of a border or along a fence. Great cut flower or leave on the plant to mature for winter bird feed.

Plant sunflowers in organic-rich, well-drained soil in full sun.
