Plant Features

Big Smile sunflowers are a striking variety known for their deep red-brown blooms. Standing at a height of 5-6 feet, these sunflowers make a bold statement in any garden with their deep burgundy to orange petals surrounding a dark center. They typically bloom from mid-summer to early fall, offering a beautiful contrast to the more typical yellows and oranges of the season. Velvet Queen Sunflowers are a delight for pollinators, attracting bees, butterflies, and wild birds. These sunflowers are also heat and drought tolerant and prefer full sun and well-drained soil. They are highly valued as cut flowers due to their unique color and long vase life.
