description for "Sunflowers: Helianthus 'Lemon Queen'"

'Lemon Queen' is a lovely branching variety of sunflowers particularly attractive to bees. 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 baskets, removing before plants get crowded. Be sure to thin properly when seedlings are about 3 inches tall to roughly 12 inches apart. - edited by dtd pbcouchman
