Common Sunflower Plant (Helianthus Annuus)

Botanical Name: Helianthus Annuus

Also Known as:

  • Sunflower
  • Bright Yellow Sunflower

Common Sunflower Plant (Helianthus Annuus) in an outdoor annual edible herb plant.


Common Sunflower Plant (Helianthus Annuus) are the poster flower of summer. They typically begin blooming in the mid-summer and can persist into early fall. The flowers, which stretch around 3 to 6 inches across on average, have a wide central disk surrounded by short petals.

The main species plant features orange-yellow petals with a brown or purple disk, but growers now have produced flowers in several other colors. Sunflowers grow on a hairy, sturdy, upright stem that can be several feet high. The stems can hold a single flower or be branched with multiple flowers. Rough, hairy, oval to triangular leaves grow along the stem. In the fall, the disks give way to sunflower seeds, which are a major draw for birds and other wildlife.

 

Care and Growth:

Soil: Grow your sunflowers in large, individual containers with drainage holes and well-drained potting mix.

Light: Sunflowers grow best in locations with full sun; they prefer long, hot summers to flower well.

Water: Once established, they will tolerate some drought. However, in the periods before, during and after flowering, they perform best with deep, regular watering.

Temperature: Temperatures for growing sunflowers are between 70 and 78 degrees Fahrenheit. But they are tolerant to high heat as long as their moisture needs are met.

Fertilizing: Sunflowers don’t need fertilizer unless your soil is poor in nutrients. If this is the case, add a slow-release fertilizer or compost on top of the soil. Avoid adding any too close to the plant’s base. Adding fertilizer to already healthy soil can produce too much nitrogen and cause the stems to break or a delay in blooming.
