Earthy autumn shades of rusty red, burnt orange, and hints of glowing gold make up the palette for Terracotta sunflowers. Nicely branching, 5-7 ft. tall plants produce many pollen-free, 4-7 in. flowers that open deep red and evolve into warm orange and brown tones as the flowers mature. The undersides of the petals are showy and flame-like. Terracotta sunflower was a winner in our trial gardens for luxuriously rich colors and long-lasting flowers, both on the plant and for cutting.
Growing Terracotta 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.
Grow Sunflowers: Sunflowers require full sun. Soil which is moist and moderately fertile will produce the best flower heads. Blooms attract bees, birds and butterflies.
