Availability: In Stock

Drop Dead Red is drop dead gorgeous! This is a fabulous mix of large (4"–5"), long-lasting, florist-quality flowers. 'Moulin Rouge', 'Red Wave', 'Ruby Eclipse', and 'Joker' come in several shades of red from deep burgundy and steamy valentine red, to autumnal pumpkin/orange-red, and bicolors. These tall, branching plants are ideal for the back of the garden, or as a border. Plant only 10" apart to produce longer stems. As a pollenless hybrid, there'll be no more messy pollen drop from your gorgeous cut flower arrangements, but still plenty of nectar for pollinators. Drought tolerant, but best flower production with regular water.

These colorful sunflowers are the stars of my late spring and early summer garden! The various hues of red, orange, and pink always bring smiles to guests to my garden. I've had excellent luck with germination and I appreciate the variety that shows up. The bees buzz with excitement as soon as the sunflowers bloom. I also leave the dried and dead flowers in the garden for the birds and squirrels. A great addition to add beauty to the garden for you and food to the garden for your wildlife visitors.
