Its OUT of this World and gardeners were over the MOON about Saturn!!- We grew this at the University of Illinois Master Gardener's Idea Garden- ALL fell in love with it! HOW can it be better than the Helianthus 'Suncredible Yellow' we raved about a few years ago (and is still great)?? IT IS!- More colorful, brighter blooms, flower power ALL season- even until the end of October, the spent blooms are actually attractive, it stands up well on its own and is a tough durable plant. We all decided it is a MUST HAVE plant for next year!
Suncredible® Saturn™ Sunflower Helianthus hybrid
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
FeaturesGood looks AND personality.
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.Continuous Bloom or RebloomerDisease ResistantLong BloomingFall InterestHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryDrought TolerantAttracts:BeesButterfliesResists:DeerNative to North America

Great in landscapes and containers. It is well-suited to growing at the back of garden beds or along fences. Makes a great cutflower.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.Suncredible® Saturn™ Helianthus hybrid USPPAF, Can PBRAF, US Utility patent pending
