SunFill Green sunflower has multilayered, lime green outer calyxes that add a stunning dimension to floral bouquets. While most sunflowers are characterized by their flower petals, with SunFill Green, the outer calyxes create the show; they add a stunning new dimension to sunflower bouquets. SunFill Green flowers bloom at 3-4 inches on sturdy, straight stems, which are pollen-free. Cut the flowers when they start opening and expanding before the short yellow petals show. They last for a long time in the vase and on the plant.

GROWING INSTRUCTIONS (Included on packet): This seed should be sown directly outdoors since the long roots of this plant need space to develop and dislike being disturbed. After the last spring frost when the soil has warmed to 70-75°, plant several seeds together 1" deep and 6" apart in rich, well drained soil. The seeds will begin to germinate in 1-2 weeks. Thin to the strongest seedling per grouping. The use of a netting or screen can be useful to prevent birds or animals from eating the seeds as they develop. Keep soil moist.
