Glorious plumes of yellow, studded with 3-inch blooms in neat rows along their tremendous length, arise in late summer on these huge, hardy garden performers! If you like annual sunflowers, take a look at its perennial cousin!
Very easy to grow, Prairie Sunflower reaches 6 to 8 feet tall in the sun. It is trouble-free and very floriferous, beginning just as most of the summer color is winding down. What a great way to extend your season in the perennial border!
Excellent for cut flowers or for massed color in the back of the border, bed, or against an outdoor structure such as a shed or fence, Prairie Sunflower is one of the finest, most free-flowering sources of summer color we know! The blooms help carry the garden over the “in-between” season of late summer/early fall, and the tall, vigorous habit keeps the border looking full even as earlier bloomers begin to fade.
Direct-sow these seeds in any sunny spot. Not fussy about soil, Prairie Sunflower is hardy almost everywhere — zones 4-9 — in the contiguous U.S. We think it is a fine plant that should be part of everyone’s garden! Packet is 50 seeds.
