Ballad Sunflower


A Hot Summer Survivors selection.

This dwarf sunflower makes an excellent florist gift item or indoor lifestyle plant, and is also well-suited to warm-weather landscape markets like Florida. The pollenfree plants do not aggravate allergies and there is no messy pollen to drop on furniture. Very mildew-tolerant Ballad produces well-formed, 4 to 5-in./10 to 13- cm, bright golden yellow flowers with darker bronze centers over shiny green foliage. Plants flower at a shorter height under short days; under long days in the Summer, plants are taller without growth regulators. Seed can be direct sown into 4 to 6-in./10 to 15-cm pots for easy production. Supplied as raw seed.

Key Tips : Plants grow shorter under short days. Under longer days, plants grow up to 24-30 in. (60-75 cm) without growth regulators. Plants can flower year-round.
