I was highly impressed with this annual sunflower that grows not on single, tall stalks but as a three-by-three-foot bush with multiple blooms that keep coming from June until frost. Starting with a little transplant in a four-inch pot in May, Suncredible Yellow quickly turned into a multi-stem bush that produced hundreds of bright yellow flowers with brown centers all season. Just one put on a head-turning show in my front rock garden. The stems were sturdy, the plant didn’t need dead-heading, and lurking deer didn’t mess with it after a little sampling in May.
The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
FeaturesDon't hate me because I'M BEAUTIFUL.
This everblooming sunflower is built on a well branched bush-like habit that is perfect for the back of the bed, as an annual screen or along a fence. The blooms are about 4” across and do not need to be deadheaded to continue blooming, but can be groomed for tidiness, and also makes a great cutflower. This plant blooms several weeks longer than similar sunflowers due to its semi indeterminate to determinate habit. Great for pollinators and will pump blooms all season and well into the fall for a great seasonal pop of color.Award WinnerContinuous Bloom or RebloomerDisease ResistantLong BloomingFall InterestHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryDrought TolerantAttracts:BeesButterfliesResists:DeerNative to North America

Great in landscapes and containers. Can be used as an annual screening component and it wel-suited to growing at the back of garden beds or along fences. Make a great cutflower.Maintenance Notes:
Great in average and rich soils, but also capable of growing in poorer soils and tolerant of dry conditions once established. A controlled release fertilizer application at the time of planting should be sufficient for the summer, however, a second application of controlled release fertilizer applied in mid-summer should increase bloom number and keep the plant producing longer. A great home cut flower.Suncredible® Yellow Helianthus hybrid USPPAF, Can PBRAF, US Utility Patent Pending

Pleasantly surprised how big this grew throughout the summer and the blooms continue on and on. Mine is in large container. Will buy more next year.Kay, Missouri, United States, 30 weeks ago
