Moonshadow Ornamental Sunflower Flower Seeds

Blooming Bouquets

Sunflower - Moonshadow - Helianthus annuus

Annual - Ornamental Moonshadow shines in the garden with flower faces of creamy, lemon-custard colored petals surrounding dark chocolate centers. These full-framed beauties produce lots of striking 3 - 5" blossoms on open, multi-branching stems. Plant to bring lots of branching stems of these free flowering sunflowers indoors for charming, casual bouquets. In the garden, rows of sturdy Moonshadow plants make a joyful and colorful border or flowering summer garden screen.

Soil & Water:Make several sowings several weeks apart to have a succession of flowers in full bloom. Keep soil moist and well-weeded and protect very young seedlings from birds with netting or plastic berry baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Prefer good garden soil.Amend soil with a slow release fertilizer if soil is poor - not too high in nitrogen or flowers will be sparse.Once established, plants are somewhat drought tolerant./p>

Planting & Growing: To Plant Outdoors: Plant in full sun when weather is warm and settled both day and night and all danger of frost has passed. Poke seeds into well-worked soil about 1" deep, 4 - 5" apart. Press soil firmly over seeds and keep moist until seedlings emerge in 8 - 10 days. Thin to 12 - 15" apart when seedlings are large enough to handle. To Start Indoors: Several weeks before the last frost date, sow seeds 1" 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 12" apart in full sun, disturbing the roots as little as possible.
