Deep burgundy petals surround the large ebony center on this annual sunflower that grows up to 6 feet tall. Plant this sunflower in full sun and in average soils, and sit back to watch the goldfinches, hummingbirds, and bees of all kinds visit the flowers. Thin but strong side shoots produce slightly smaller flowers to continue the flowering season for weeks after the main flower has started to produce seeds.
May - June, July - August
