Welcome in the sunshine and flip flops! Suncredible® Yellow Sunflower Helianthus hybrid is the quintessential addition to summer fun! Sunflowers just radiate with beauty. With 4 inch blooms, the cheery, yellow petals surround a perfectly symmetrical brown center. The green branching stems and leaves create a dense bushy upright habit that gives way to a multitude of sunny faces. Medium in height, this sunflower reaches up to 36 inches. It will spread up to 32 inches. Helianthus has prolific blooms that last all Spring, Summer, and Fall.

This sunflower has so many perks. It is deer resistant, heat and drought tolerant, disease-resistant, and a North American native. Don’t forget that bees and butterflies adore Helianthus too!. When used in containers, this plant works wonders as a thriller. Sunflowers always look stunning in a bouquet. Sure to brighten any day, use Helianthus to create that perfect focal point in an indoor or outdoor space.

Suncredible® Yellow Sunflower Care

Suncredible® Yellow Sunflower thrives in full sun and requires 6 or more hours of sunlight daily. This plant is easy going and has average water and soil needs. It does best in soils rich in organic matter, but it can also tolerate poor soil and with fewer blooms. Ensure soils are well-draining and moist, but once established, it can tolerate periods of drought. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in the early spring and in mid-summer to keep blooms bountiful.

Treat Helianthus as an annual. It will last from spring planting until hard frost. Overwintering in colder zones is not recommended. It is hardy to zones 9 to 11.

Suncredible® Yellow Sunflower Spacing

Allow an 18 to 24-inch space between plants when adding Helianthus to a container or in the landscape. A 14-inch pot is ideal. Allow at least a 6-inch gap between plants when applying it to a container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
