description for "Sunflowers: Helianthus annuus 'Cinnamon Sun'"

This gorgeous new variety has 5- to 6-inch flower faces with brightly glowing cinnamon-bronze petals and chocolate centers. The vibrant color of 'Cinnamon Sun' accents all other garden flowers. You'll find the sturdy stalks topped by clusters of big blooms make a wonderful garden screen or backdrop. Bring armfuls of these deep-hued beauties indoors for centerpiece bouquets of rich color. After garden bloom, spent flowers offer nutritious, tasty seed snacks for fall songbirds. 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
