Sunflower ‘Sunsation’ is a compact multi flowering sunflower for pots for your sunny patio. They grow to approximately 50cm (20″) and bush out to around 40cm (16″). The flower heads are quite large in comparison with the plant’s size an look like a sunflower. There are several blooms that appear on top of each of the stem.
When you pot them up use a multi purpose compost and place the pot in a sunny spot. Keep them well watered during the warm weather and feed with a high potash fertiliser such as Gro-sure All Purpose 6 Month Feed. Deadhead the fading flowers for more flowers. They will flower from June to early autumn.
Sunflowers are annuals but should produce some handy bird seed on the later flowers if you leave them on the plants.
