Description

Sunflower- Autumn Beauty      

Helianthus annuus

Autumn Beauty is a classical sunflower variety. It grows a large number of long-stemmed flowers in a range of solid and bi-color light warm colors, including golden yellow, bronze, orange, and burgundy, from summer to late autumn. Every plant bears a profusion of long-stemmed flowers with dark centers. Sunflower seeds can be a bit of a challenge, as they are food for so many animals. If starting in containers, be careful during transplanting, as they don't like that either. Make sure to transplant super early, or use deep containers (4-6 in minimum), as they like to form a big taproot. Keeping them in a small container for too long, can in inhibit the growth of the plant.
