    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.

    • 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!

    • Suncredible is truly and incredible plant. Grew quickly and has been blooming continuously. The blooms are good for cut flowers or to just have a sunny display of color in the garden. I love it and will be getting more!

    • I was highly impressed with this annual sunflower that grows not on single, tall stalks but as a three-by-three-foot bush with multiple blooms that keep coming from June until frost. Starting with a little transplant in a four-inch pot in May, Suncredible Yellow quickly turned into a multi-stem bush that produced hundreds of bright yellow flowers with brown centers all season. Just one put on a head-turning show in my front rock garden. The stems were sturdy, the plant didn’t need dead-heading, and lurking deer didn’t mess with it after a little sampling in May.

    • Pleasantly surprised how big this grew throughout the summer and the blooms continue on and on. Mine is in large container. Will buy more next year.
