Sunflower Golden Flowers
Called Soraya, this was the first sunflower to win an All-American Selections (AAS) award. It has thick, sturdy stems. Branches average 20” and support 4-6” blooms. May yield as many as 20-25 stems per plant.
Plant outside after danger of frost has passed.
Planting Instructions: Plant outside as soon as received in light, well-drained soil. Sunflowers dislike root disturbance. So be careful in transplanting. Excessive nitrogen may cause plants to grow too vigorously with abnormal slower shapes.
Light Preference: Sun
Harvest: Flowers can be picked tight when color first begins to show or when the flowers are just beginning to open. Flowers may also be hung to dry when completely open.
