Nothing says summer quite like the sunflower! Sunflowers do triple duty providing beauty, attracting butterflies & birds as well as provide food for you & your livestock!
Sunflowers can grow upwards of 14 feet! Give them lots of direct sun (6 - 8 hours), some wind protection, plenty of room & water to grow. They are extremely tolerant of drought & heat; preferring long, hot summers to flower well.
Sow outside: 4 to 6 weeks after average last frost, or up to 2 months before first fall frost.
