A florist?s dream, and a gardener?s delightful reality! Every variety in this designer mix of gorgeous, long- lasting, cut flower quality sunflowers is pollenless for spotless tabletops.
Drop Dead Red is drop dead gorgeous! This is a fabulous mix of large (4"–5"), long-lasting, florist-quality flowers. 'Moulin Rouge', 'Red Wave', 'Ruby Eclipse', and 'Joker' come in several shades of red from deep burgundy and steamy valentine red, to autumnal pumpkin/orange-red, and bicolors. These tall, branching plants are ideal for the back of the garden, or as a border. Plant only 10" apart to produce longer stems. As a pollenless hybrid, there'll be no more messy pollen drop from your gorgeous cut flower arrangements, but still plenty of nectar for pollinators. Drought tolerant, but best flower production with regular water.
Variety Info4"–5" deep red, pollenless flowers in various shades of red.
