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

The scintillating color blend of 'Sun Samba' was carefully formulated as a dancing celebration of all the forms and joyous colors sunflowers offer. You'll have strong branching stalks with free-flowering big blooms in a full array, including ringed and bicolored faces and fully double flowers. Shades include sunny yellow, deep gold, lemon, mahogany, bronze and golden-orange with many variations. 'Sun Samba' provides endless, strikingly beautiful bouquets and a glorious summer display that turns heads in the garden. 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
