Single Packet of 40 Seeds

Grow a garden filled with Chocolate Sunflowers from freshly harvested Helianthus annus flower seeds. Chocolate is a branching variety of Sunflower, which produces deep red, to maroon colored petals, accented with a dark brown center. Each plant will grow to a mature height of roughly 4 or 5 feet tall, and will produce 5 to 6 inch blooms. Chocolate displays multiple flowers per plant, and will attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden as well. Some of these insects include butterflies, bumblebees, honeybees and hummingbirds.

Categorized as an annual flowering plant, Chocolate Sunflowers will grow quickly from freshly harvested seeds. The plants will produce stems, leaves and then flowers, all within a single growing season. When the cooler temperatures of the late Autumn season arrive, your sunflowers will begin to wilt. Before the first frost, you can gather the seeds from your plants to resow the following year. Be careful however, as many squirrels, birds and other animals will be after them as well.

Sunflowers are among one of the easiest plants to establish from fresh flower seeds. They don’t take very long to germinate, they need little to no care, and aren’t too picky on soil conditions. Chocolate Sunflowers make an excellent cut flower for bouquets and floral arrangements as well. Grow Sunflowers along borders & fences or in flower beds as a background plant. For a splash of autumn colors, take a look at some of the many other varieties of sunflowers we have to offer, including some of our hybrid varieties such as “Moulin Rouge” or “Ruby Eclipse.”

Sowing The Seed

Sunflowers are not particularly fond of being transplanted, but if started indoors, sow in peat pots, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Sow at a depth of 1/2” under topsoil. Transplant entire pots into the garden, or direct sow when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Stakes may be necessary to support your Sunflowers, only until the stems become strong enough to stand on their own.

Growing Conditions

Sunflowers grow long taproots and may rot if the roots become waterlogged. It is recommended to check your sowing area for hard, compacted soil prior to sowing. Renew any hard, compacted soil with a mixture of compost. Sunflowers will enjoy an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day and should be watered daily so that the soil is kept moist until germination has occurred.

Germination & Growth

Your sunflower seeds will begin to germinate within 7 to 10 days after sowing. Plants will grow to a mature height of 4 to 5 feet tall. Space your seeds about 6 to 12 inches apart from one another. Chocolate Sunflower is an annual, branching variety, that produces maroon colored flowers.
