MORE INFORMATION

There are very few sunny flowers that quite grasp the warmth and charm of a summer’s day quite like the sunflower – and this variety will certainly leave your garden guests coming back for more! 

‘Sunsation’, also known as Helianthus annuus, boasts blooms with a bronze-to-brown central ring, surrounded by a show of flashy yellow petals. The headline blooms proudly sit on top glossy, dark green leaves, which form excellent foliage and provide ground coverage.

Each plug plant is guaranteed to bloom with five flower buds, providing ample colour for an even longer period of the year.

These buttery yellow annuals first start to bloom towards the tail end of June or early July, remaining bright and cheery all the way through to autumn.

What’s more, the beauty provided by these sunflowers does not stop in the garden, as the strong stems and flashy flowerheads make superb cut flowers. Make sure to plant plenty to share with your friends and family.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as 12 plug plants, ready to grow on before planting out.

CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Regular maintenance and watering are essential to grow fabulous flowers that last the whole season. Thankfully, no pruning is required.

Care Guide

Planting Advice

  • Unpack plugs immediately and stand them in water for an hour.
  • If you can’t do this, they can sit in their mini greenhouse for a week if upright and not too wet.
  • Plugs may be slightly dry or yellow after being in a dark box in the post, but they’ll quickly recover.
  • Put them somewhere warm, light and airy such as a windowsill or greenhouse.
  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approximately 20cm apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • For best results, plant in full sun, with access to at least six hours of sun per day. Grow in well-drained, neutral soil.

Aftercare Advice

  • Aim to keep the compost moist but not soggy and avoid wetting the foliage and flowers.
  • From March to June, apply a general-purpose liquid fertiliser once a week.
