A perfectly formed perky little Sunflower! The dwarf 30-40 cm (12-15 in) plants will do great as a border, mass plantings or in containers. Blooms are bright yellow with brown centers and will literally ‘smile’ up at you from the garden!
Direct seed in garden after the soil has thoroughly warmed in the spring, covering seed with 1/2 cm (1/4 in) of soil. Keep soil moist until all seedlings appear. For earlier flowers start seed 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting outside. Germinates best at 21 C (70 F) in 7 to 10 days. Grow on at 16 C (62 F). Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 40 cm (16 in) apart.
