QTY: 50 Seeds

 

Color innovation in a professional-quality, single-stem sunflower.

 

With pale, creamy yellow petals and a light golden-green center, this blonde beauty is sophisticated enough for use in wedding flowers and sturdy enough for market bouquets. Every bit as early and reliable as the other well-known ProCut colors. Single-stem plants have tall, strong stems and 4–6", pollenless blooms.

 

NOTE: Light-colored petals are more susceptible to damage by insect feeding. To avoid insect damage, we encourage harvesting blooms just as they begin to open and storing until they open to the desired appearance.

 

DAYS TO GERMINATION:

7-14 days at 70-75°F (21-24°C)

 

SOWING:

Direct seed (recommended) - After last frost, sow 1/2" deep. Transplant - Sow into 72 to 50-cell flats 2-3 weeks prior to planting out. Plants dislike root disturbance, but sowing indoors and then transplanting the first crop outdoors can be a successful way to get first-early sunflowers. Do not pinch plants. Pinched single-stem sunflowers will produce low-quality blooms or no blooms at all. Succession-sow every 1-2 weeks and/or plant multiple varieties with varied days to maturity for continuous harvest.

 

LIGHT PREFERENCE:

Sun.

 

PLANT HEIGHT:

Varies.

 

PLANT SPACING:

4-6".

 

HARDINESS ZONES:

Annual.

 

HARVEST:

Flowers can be harvested tight, when color first shows, or when almost completely open, depending on your market and preferred use. Dried - Flowers are completely open. Hang or use silica gel.

 

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:

Light, well-drained soil. Excessive nitrogen may cause plants to grow too vigorously with abnormal flower shapes.

 

NOTES:

Flower size and stem diameter are controlled by plant spacing, temperature, soil type, and day length. For early and late season production, select varieties that are day-length neutral or are noted as suitable for flowering under short days.

 

USES:

Excellent cut flower or for gardens.
