Need some extra sunshine for your garden? Or something completely different and awe-inspiring? These sunflowers are stunning, and practical, too. They provide food for the birds and the bees, food for us, and pure golden oil, with a majestic beauty as an added bonus.
There are short dwarf varieties, giants that grow over 16 feet tall, and varieties in between. They are all highly attractive in the garden.
Sun-loving, sunflowers enjoy being planted directly where they are to grow once the temperatures have warmed up sufficiently. Soil temp should ideally be 13-16°C for good germination.
