Bright as the sunrise, 4"–6" golden-yellow flowers on tall, sturdy stems are the backyard florist's dream come true. The Hebrew word, zohar, translates to "speldor" or "radiance", and this sunflower has both! 'Zohar' blooms just 2 months from sowing, and has an extra-long vase life (up to 12 days). With one flower per plant, sow every 2 to 4 weeks for continuous summer bloom and endless bouquets. Drought tolerant. Although pollenless, they do produce nectar for pollinators.

I won't sow them again

My experience was the sprout came on very strong and top-heavy, so that it never was straight. It's still possible that these little baby seedlings will grow up and make a pretty flower but their babyhood was too colicky & such a fussy headache, I will not do it again.

Owner Response: Hi Michelle, If I am understanding what you are describing it sounds like these sunflowers were not getting enough light, which can cause them to be lanky, as they stretch for more light. Sunflowers do best when sown directly outdoors in a full sun area (6 or more hours of sunlight). I hope that helps!
