(Helianthus annuus)
This outstanding sunflower grows quickly and blooms early. The vigorous, multi branching plants are quickly covered with masses of cheerful flower faces whose perfectly formed, deep golden-orange petals are arranged evenly around rich chocolate colored center discs. Sundancer flowers so heavily that you can grow the 4 to 6 foot plants as a stunning blooming border or hedge and also enjoy armfuls as lovely cut flowers for bouquets and arrangements.

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 in. deep, 4 to 5 in. apart. Press soil firmly over seeds and keep moist until seedlings emerge in 8 to 10 days. Important: when seedlings are well established, thin them to a final spacing of 1 foot apart so plants can grow sturdy stalks and big flowers. Extra 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 grow and mature.


GROWING NOTES

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