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.

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.
