At last, a field of gently swaying sunflowers can become a reality in your sunny garden — without planting hundreds of seeds! Sunny Babe is a branching or Cucumberleaf variety, which offers dozens of blooms over its 24-inch-spread. Each flower is about 3 to 4 inches wide, with brilliant colors, a seed-filled center, and all the majesty of its larger-flowered cousins. And these blooms are right at eye level, on stems perfect for cutting!
Sunny Babe reaches 4 to 5 feet high, with excellent branching and no need of support for its many blooms. It flowers over a very long summer season, and if you leave the final blooms to dry out on the plant, you will create an autumn-long feast for the birds!
These flowers are so lovely — yellow at the tips, shading to rich golden and orange at the base of each petal, all surrounding a large brown-black cone. Great for cutting, they are delightful in even a small garden planting. A large swathe of Sunny Babes is breathtaking!
Like all Sunflowers, Sunny Babe is easy to grow. Direct-sow the seeds in any sunny, well-drained soil after all danger of frost is past in spring and the soil has warmed up. The blooms begin with the hot summer weather and continue all season. What a joy! Pkt is 25 seeds.
