Dwarf Sunspot sunflower seeds produce stout plants that rarely grow taller than 60cm (24″). Dwarf Sunspot sunflower makes a very striking container plant, but will require regular feeding, and a fairly heavy base so that it doesn’t get top heavy. The long lasting flowers produce copious seeds for wild birds to snack on. This is a really fun variety because it’s so strange to see giant sunflowers on such relatively short plants.

Seedlings come in a plastic tray.
To ensure seedlings are in excellent condition, we only start germinating them upon order confirmation.
Seedlings take an estimated 3 weeks to be ready.
Water newly planted Sunspot sunflower seeds frequently to keep the soil moist but not soggy. Water seedlings frequently, directing the water to the soil about 4 inches (10 cm.) from the plant. Once the sunflowers are well established, water deeply but infrequently to encourage long, healthy roots.
Sunflowers don’t need a lot of fertilizer and too much can create weak, spindly stems. Add a small amount of general-purpose garden fertilizer to the soil at planting time if your soil is poor. You can also apply a well-diluted, water-soluble fertilizer a few times during the blooming season.
