The pollen-less flowers have long, spider-like yellow petals and dark brown centers. Flowers bloom early, and are of medium size, one flower per stem. Plants are easy to grow, will thrive in a wider range of weather and soil conditions than most. Best results when grown in soil that is less fertile than other sunflowers prefer. Stella Gold is an entirely unique sunflower which lends a light, open texture to bouquets. Plants grow 4-6 ft. tall.
Growing Stella Gold Sunflower Seeds
Plant Sunflower Seeds: Direct sow into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost. Plant seeds 6 in. apart, ½ in. deep. Thin to 1-1½ ft. apart. Can start plants early indoors in 2 in. pots or cell packs. Transplant into the garden well before seedlings become root bound.
