80 days. Quintessential sunflower for cheerful gardens, handmade summer bouquets, and the cut flower market. Flowers are 4-6” across, with dark chocolatey brown centers and vibrant golden orange petals. Plants stand strong at 5-6’ tall and branch heavily to produce an abundance of uniform flowers with long stems. Sunflower petals are edible and beautify as a garnish. The seeds of this sunflower are edible but are quite small. Easy to grow from seed, sunflowers feed bees and attract goldfinches, increasing the wildlife in any garden. An All America Selections winner in 2000, the first sunflower to receive the honor.

Sunflowers are easy to grow from seed outside provided that they are kept moist during germination & seedlings are protected from slugs (use Sluggo). Also, protect plants from groundhogs & deer. Sow seeds outside 6/1-6/30, 6” apart. Thin to 18” for full size plants.
