  • Pollen-free sunflower
  • Makes an impressive container plant
  • Distinctive gold and bronze sunflowers

This dwarf, bushy sunflower makes an impressive container plant for adding a bright splash of colour to the patio. Sunflower 'Solar Flash' is multi-headed and early flowering, producing distinctive gold and bronze sunflowers with a chocolate coloured, pollen free centre. Growing to just 50cm (20") tall, this charming little sunflower makes a fantastic cut flower. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 35cm (14").

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Try toasting the seed kernels for a healthy snack.

Sowing

Direct sow Sunflower seeds outdoors where they are to grow from April to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow seeds thinly, at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in drills spaced 45cm (18") apart and cover seed with its own depth of soil to exclude light. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes up to 21 days. When sunflower seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them out to 30cm (12") apart.

Alternatively, sow indoors in individual 7.5cm (3") pots from March to April at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F). Once germinated, grow sunflower plants on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed.
