    Features

    Don't hate me because I'M BEAUTIFUL.

    This everblooming sunflower is built on a well branched bush-like habit that is perfect for the back of the bed, as an annual screen or along a fence. The blooms are about 4” across and do not need to be deadheaded to continue blooming,  but can be groomed for tidiness, and also makes a great cutflower. This plant blooms several weeks longer than similar sunflowers due to its semi indeterminate to determinate habit. Great for pollinators and will pump blooms all season and well into the fall for a great seasonal pop of color.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Great in average and rich soils, but also capable of growing in poorer soils and tolerant of dry conditions once established. A controlled release fertilizer application at the time of planting should be sufficient for the summer, however, a second application of controlled release fertilizer applied in mid-summer should increase bloom number and keep the plant producing longer.  A great home cut flower.

    • Zone 9b Northern CA. Great plant! Bought the one gallon size and planted it in early April. It really took off in June and lasted until early November. It brightened up our back border. Very happy and planning on buying more for next year.

    • My Suncredible’s put on quite a show this year. They are still bursting with blooms although, with the amount of rain we’ve received the stems have fallen. I brought two and they’ve reached about 5ft wide and 4 ft tall. Ordered directly from PW and they came packaged very nicely.

    • Love these sunflowers! I planted four in containers and the flowers keep coming! I’ll definitely get more next year.

    • Buy this plant you will not be disappointed. I am extremely impressed by this plant. When I planted it in the ground in the spring we had a huge golf ball size hail storm that almost destroyed the plant. But amazingly it came back. Full blooms all summer long I’ve done nothing with this plant and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It has bushed out and is so hardy. I’ve had so many compliments on it. Living in one of the coldest provinces of Canada I am very disappointed that in another month my plant will be finished. Will definitely purchase another one next year.

    • These babies are huge and never quit! I plant just three tiny little plugs in the beginning of May, and I've been enjoying the large drift of yellow ever since- they're still going strong now approaching fall. Definitely getting more next year!

    • I purchased mine at a local Home Depot nursery as a container plant for the front door step. It receives sun all day until late afternoon. It has very few new blooms on it and the old ones make the plant look dead. Very unsatisfied as a decorative container plant.

    • This has easily become my favorite. I Purchased from a local nursery and I’m already planning for next year to buy four of them instead of just one. I was ready to leave a picture but do not see that option.

    • I planted these last year for the first time, and they were a favorite. Easy to maintain. Bloomed from summer into fall. I can’t wait to plant them this year!

    • I purchased 10 of these last summer for my granddaughter's wedding to use as cut flowers. They bloomed away all summer into fall. I loved them and will grow them again. I grew them in pots as well as the ground. Perfection!
