Evening Sun Sunflower
Helianthus annuus

'Evening Sun' is a beautiful variety that can reach six to seven feet in height with blooms that are medium to large in size in shades including yellow, crimson, burgundy, bronze and rust. Very attractive to bees and other beneficial pollinating insects.

Once established, sunflowers prefer dry soil in a sunny location. It blooms from summer into the fall. Use as cut-flowers or leave standing in your beds and gardens for migratory birds to feast on later in the year. Each packet contains 2 grams, which is approximately 40 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Sunflowers are very easy to grow and because of their size, quite spectacular for a child’s garden.

Sow directly outdoors, ¾ inches deep. Thin the plants at first to 8 inches and then to two feet to avoid crowding. (We have had good luck transplanting)

Water regularly and weed between the plants to eliminate competition.

Harvest the seeds by cutting the flowering heads when the backs have turned yellow. Complete the drying by hanging them upside down in a warm, dry place.
