Product Overview

Helianthus annuus

Like a beacon of light 'Lemon Queen' attracting bees, butterflies, and other pollinators to feast on nectar and pollen offered by the sunny yellow flowers. Great cut flower.

Majestic, multi-branched plants provide gorgeous cut flowers throughout summer. Easy to grow in almost any well-drained soil, and drought tolerant. In areas with a long growing season, sow a new crop every 2–4 weeks up until 3 months before first fall frost for continuous bloom. Due to its intense bee attraction, 'Lemon Queen' is the sunflower used in the Great Sunflower Project, a study to gather information about native bee populations.

Variety Info

Blooms have lemon-yellow petals with a brown center. Plants produce one large main flower, 5"–7" wide, followed by smaller secondary flowers.

Sowing Inside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Sunflowers are senstive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly in the ground.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date.
