Golden Sunking Sunflower Review
Despite a late start in my Ohio garden, this 5 foot tall plant ended up being a show stopper indeed. The video below shows how gorgeous the blooms on this plant are. Scroll down to see my personal growing tips and more.
The blooms are amazing and super cheerful on this 5 foot tall stalk. I started my plants the 2nd week of June as seed which is kind of late for sunflowers. The bloom is a double and I personally think a little heaving for arrangements. On a brighter note, the bloom doesn’t drop pollen when used as cut flower indoors. Not to mention it was super easy to grow without any additional watering this summer. The biggest issue you may have is the heavy heads of this bloom. Be sure to prune as each bloom expires to help the plant stand straight. Below is a list of details about this sunflower variety.
