Description

Sunflower - Valentine - Helianthus annuus

Annual - These florist-quality beauties look like an artist carefully arranged their crisp, lemon sherbet colored petals around dark chocolate centers. The 5' tall branching plants grow quickly to bear a profusion of 4 - 5" flowers of exceptionally perfect form and beauty. Award winning Valentine stays in bloom several weeks longer than other sunflowers. You'll have the extended pleasure of their fresh, bright flower faces to celebrate the sun as well as lots of lavish bouquets to shine indoors.

Soil & Water:Make several sowings 3 weeks apart to have a succession of bloom. Keep soil moist and well-weeded and protect seedlings from hungry birds with netting or plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. No extra amendment is needed unless soil is poor and could benefit from a pelleted, slow release balanced fertilizer.

Planting & Growing:To Plant Outdoors: Plant in full sun in good garden soil when weather is warm and settled both day and night and all danger of frost has passed. Poke seeds into well-worked soil 1/2" deep and 6" apart. Press soil firmly over seeds and keep moist until germination in 8 - 10 days. Thin to 10-12" apart so plants have ample room to grow. To Start Indoors: Several weeks before the last frost date, sow seeds 1/2" deep in individual pots of well-drained seed starting mix. Keep moist and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outside when seedlings are large enough to handle. When weather has warmed into the 50°F range, transplant 10-12" apart in full sun, disturbing the roots as little as possible.
