As much as I love the colors and designs of any flower garden, there’s not much that catches the eye like a stand of Sunflowers. The bold, contrasting yellows, blacks, oranges, and reds remind us of a morning sky as the sun rises over the horizon. Sunflowers stand tall above the garden with blooms that defy gravity and kindle our sense of wonder. They attract songbirds, butterflies, and bees to their rich buffet of seeds and nectar. The drama Sunflowers bring to any garden is without compare. And now you can bring this wonder to your garden with this printable Sunflower Garden Planting Chart.
Sunflowers aren’t just a pretty face in your garden, though. You can enjoy roasted Sunflower seeds, some varieties are deer-resistant, they can shade parts of your garden that don’t like direct sunlight, they can become a natural fence or privacy border, or they can become a striking centerpiece for your dinner table.
And if you don’t have the outdoor space, there’s a Sunflower for you, too. While some varieties of Sunflowers can reach heights of 12 to 15 feet, with blooms more than a foot wide, other varieties are bred specifically to thrive in containers on your balcony or deck. The adorably named Teddy Bear Sunflowers top out at 3 feet, with the cutest little three-inch blooms.
So, which variety is right for you? Get your FREE Sunflower Garden Planting Chart now and find out!
