description for "Sunflowers: Helianthus annuus 'Musicbox'"

These award-winning short sunflowers are real powerhouses with an abundance of perky 4- to 5-inch flower faces to fill your beds and borders. The bushy plants bloom freely in lively sunny shades from rich clear yellow to deep gold and cream with lots of pretty bicolors of bronze over gold, all with crisp petals and chocolate center disks. 'Music Box' will delight you with long-blooming exuberant flowers in the garden or for bouquets. Growing these colorful flowers is easy and rewarding. Make several sowings 3 weeks apart to have a succession of flowers in full bloom. Keep soil moist and well weeded and protect seedlings from birds with netting of plastic berry boxes, removing before plants get crowded. Be sure to thin properly when seedlings are about 3 inches tall. – edited by dtd pbcouchman
