Helianthus Annuus ‘Evening Sun’
Sunflowers are easy and fast growing annuals that tolerate drought and poor soil, but perform much better with soil amendments and regular waterings. The ‘Evening Sun’ produces gorgeous 4″- 6″ autumn-colored flower heads with dark centers. Rich tones of vivid gold, autumn orange, warm mahogany, and blazing bronze are all on one plant! They are listed as reaching 6-9′ tall, but they’ve stretched taller than 10′ for us! Being a multi-branched variety this sunflower makes for an excellent annual screen or fence cover-up. Yields approximately 150-300 small black seeds per flower head, and there are multiple! This is most definitely one of our favorite sunflower varieties.
