(Helianthus annuus)
Our vibrant color combination includes bicolored sunflowers with mahogany petals that taper to golden tips and others with sunny yellow faces and gorgeous deep, dark-red flower faces. Carefree Royal Flush produces showy sunflowers early on strong branching stalks. Perfect for a dancing garden show and abundant summer bouquets. This beautiful blend comes from our favorite California sunflower breeder who specializes in varieties that both shine as cut flowers and offer great garden performance.

EASIEST TO PLANT OUTDOORS

Plant in full sun in good garden soil when weather is warm and settled, all danger of frost is past and both days and nights are evenly in the 50°F (10°C) range. Poke seeds into well-worked soil about 1/2 inch deep, 4 to 5 inches apart. Press soil firmly over seeds and keep moist until seedlings emerge in 8 to 10 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin seedlings to final spacing of 1 foot apart so these tall plants will have ample room to grow. Extra thinned seedlings can be transplanted easily.


TO START EARLY INDOORS

Several weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep in individual pots of well-drained seed starting mix. Keep moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are well established and ready to plant outside. Transplant carefully, disturbing the roots as little as possible. Space seedlings 1 foot apart so plants will have room to mature.


GROWING NOTES

These handsome branching flowers are easy and rewarding to grow. Make several sowings a few weeks apart to have a succession of flowers in full bloom. Keep soil moist and well-weeded. Protect very young seedlings from birds with netting or plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded.
