Perfect for pots and planters or brightening a perennial garden, these non-stop bloomers are as gloriously bright yellow in the ground as they are filling your vase arrangements indoors!

Suncatcher Sunflower is a beneficial flowering perennial for pollinators and blooms from July until frost to really extend your bloom time and extend food resources for pollinators! You’ll want to plant a few extras so you’ll have plenty to go around!

There’s nothing like these cheerful blossoms tucked into any smaller location as a specimen or accent among larger shrubs or smaller perennials. Thriving in hot, drier, sunny locations with ease!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Suncatcher Sunflower does best in a full sun location but can tolerate some partial shade in the hottest climates, but you’ll see a reduction in blooms and the stems may not be as sturdy. Plant in an enriched location with excellent drainage. Deadhead to keep the blooms returning and cut back in late autumn.

  • Full Sun & Partial Shade
  • Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate to Low Fertility Once Established
  • Deadhead Often & Prune Back Late Autumn/Early Winter

Suncatcher Sunflower is a smaller, compact version of the bee-friendly classic! Order bright yellow blooms for yourself or that someone special today from the Perennial experts at NatureHills.com!
