Description

Sunflower - Junior - Helianthus annuus

Annual - The first pollen-free dwarf branching sunflower, Junior forms ornamental rosettes of leaves even before flowering. When they burst into bloom, these charming short sunflowers are exceptionally long lasting. Their cheerful 4 - 5" faces have long bright yellow petals and dark center discs that smile atop branching stalks just 2.5' tall. Perfect for large pots and planters, multi-branching Junior also makes a great edging for a summer vegetable garden or flower bed.

Soil & Water: Make several sowings, 3 weeks apart, to have a succession of bright summer flowers. Protect young seedlings from marauding birds with netting or plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. When 3" tall, carefully thin seedlings to proper spacing so they have room to grow and mature. Containers drain readily so monitor soil moisture available to plants./p>

Planting & Growing: To Plant Directly in the Garden: Plant in full sun in good garden soil when all danger of frost has passed and weather is warm and in the 50's range both day and night. Sow seeds into well-worked soil 1/2" deep and 4 - 5" apart. Press soil firmly over seeds and keep moist. When seedlings are 3" tall, thin to 8" apart. For Container Planting: Sow directly into pots filled with well-moistened, good quality potting mix. Thin seedlings to no more than 1 plant per 8" pot, or 3 plants per 12" pot (12 - 18" deep). For larger planters, space plants 6" apart. Extra seedlings can be potted up for more containers, gifts or plant into the garden. To Start Indoors: Several weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2" deep in individual 3 - 4" pots of well-drained soil mix. Keep moist, feed every 1- days and provide a strong light source until ready to plant outside, when nights are evenly in the 50°F range.
