Plant Features

Ring of Fire Sunflower Plants capture the essence of a summer's sunset with their bi-colored petals ranging from deep red at the base to golden yellow at the tips. Typically standing between 4 to 6 feet tall, and spreading 2-3 feet wide, this well-branched sunflower is known for its large flowers that can reach up to 5 inches across. With a bloom time from mid-summer to early fall, these sunflowers are an excellent source of pollen for bees and butterflies, while the seeds attract various wild birds. They are perfect as a cut flower, thanks to their vivid coloring and long vase life. It is an All American Selection for good reason!

I ordered 2 of the Ring of Fire Sunflower plants. Someone stepped on one of them a day or two after I planted it. I just let it go because the leaves still looked healthy. It re-rooted itself! The leaves never wilted at all. Color me IMPRESSED!

Ring of Fire Sunflower Plant

These three healthy little sunflower plants grew rapidly on the south side of my house. The buds opened into huge golden yellow flowerheads with bright red and rust colors encircling the dark brown center. They are the prettiest sunflowers I've ever seen! Thank You, GrowJoy! Nancy Gebhardt
