description for "Sunflowers: Helianthus annuus 'Angel's Halo'"

This charming starburst sunflower has multiple flowers on branching stems. The sunny semidouble flower faces have center disks of short, tufted, chrysanthemum-like petals surrounded by a halo of longer lemony rays. Cheerful 'Angel's Halo' sunflowers are particularly early blooming and generally grow four to six feet tall. Their unique shape and clear color is a garden delight and because the long-lasting flowers are pollen free, they are ideal for heavenly bouquets to light up the indoors. 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
