A striking Sunflower that can reach up to 2-3m tall. The flower heads can vary in size but often are as big as a small dinner plate. A stunning display when planted thickly.
An excellent bee attractant.
Sunflower 'Sun King'
Plant or sow Sunflowers close together so they can offer each other support as they grow.
Sunflowers are annuals that grow well in fertile, well-drained soil. They like it warm so plant each Spring/Summer where they'll recieve 6–8 hours of sunlight each day. They can handle it pretty dry but respond well to regular watering.
Allow the seed heads to develop and dry for next years seed, to eat or feed to birds/chooks.
