Sunflowers are annuals with showy, daisylike flower-heads that are usually 2-4 inches across and bright yellow (though occasionally red). Tall and course, the plants have creeping or tuberous roots and large, bristly leaves. Today, varieties have even been developed for small spaces and containers. Most sunflowers are remarkably tough and easy to grow as long as the soil is not waterlogged. Most are heat- and drought-tolerant. They make excellent cut flowers and many are attractive to bees and birds. Smaller plants with big-time flower power. Striking compact, low-growing sunflower fills vase after beautiful vase with luminous, long-stemmed, brown-eyed, golden flowers. Heavy-branching, floriferous 20-30 feet tall plants will keep your home aglow with joyous blooms.
Planting And Care
- Water plants deeply but infrequently to encourage deep rooting
- Feed plants only sparingly; over-fertilization can cause stems to break in the fall
- Tall species and cultivars require support
- Bamboo stakes are a good choice for any plant that has a strong, single stem and needs support for a short period of time
