Sunflowers can grow anywhere from 6'-15' tall on top of thick, sturdy stems. They have large, dark green leaves with bright yellow flowers with tender petals that bloom spring to summer. The flowers need direct sunlight, well draining, fertile, moist soil to encourage the best flowering. Bees, birds and butterflies love sunflower plants.
