Our growing conditions: zone 6, average soil, full sun. We grow this giant plant from seed both indoors and outside. It is a reliable, easy to grow annual. Each plant we've had has achieved 6-8 feet in height and can get 2-3 feet wide! Each plant has many bright orange blossoms that can get 3-5 inches across. It blooms nonstop July-October. Attracts bees and butterflies all day long. Like all sunflowers, it benefits from the best possible compost you can find, both in the planting hole and used as a top dressing around each plant. We also mulch to better control moisture and temperature of the soil. They are beautiful planted with sunflowers and other sun-loving plants. They even tolerate a morning glory growing on the main stem! Highly recommended for pollinator support.
