Autumn Beauty Sunflower Seeds, when grown, will produce beautiful blooms, in rustic shades of red, orange, yellow & burgundy. These gorgeous plants will stand to a mature height of 5 to 8 feet tall, displaying their large, spade shaped leaves. The blooms themselves will open up, 4 to 6 inches in diameter, exposing a deep, chocolatey brown center.
The Autumn Beauty Sunflower is categorized as an annual flowering plant, meaning that each plant will grow quickly from a single seed, bloom profusely through the summer months, and later die with the first killing frost. If protected from squirrels & other animals, the flower heads will produce a large amount of seeds, which can be plucked & saved for the following growing season.
Autumn Beauty Sunflower plants will make a great cut flower, for many bouquets & floral arrangements as well. They produce many branches, allowing you to cut off a handful of vibrant blooms at any given time. These vibrant blooms are also known to attract an array of beneficial insects to the garden as well, such as butterflies, bumblebees, hummingbirds & honeybees. Because the Autumn Beauty Sunflower will grow to such a tall height, it is recommended to sow & grow them along fences & driveways, or by the masses in a naturalized setting.
