description for "Sunflowers: Helianthus annuus 'Chocolate Cherry'"

These delectable new sunflowers have rich chocolate-burgundy ray petals that surround dark chocolate center disks. With their beautifully shaped, velvety petals and mouthwatering rich colors, 'Chocolate Cherry' sunflowers are a joy to behold. These special sunflowers are stunning for indoor bouquets and they are standouts in the garden. 'Chocolate Cherry's beautiful flowers are also pollenless, so they have a longer, cleaner vase life. 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
