Sunflower Teddy Bear Dwarf Helianthus Annuus is a compact growing annual sunflower. Sunflower Teddy Bear seeds germinate in 10-15 days, and this sunflower plant grows only 18-24 inches tall producing many 4 to 6 inches across, ultra-double, yellow-gold flowers that look like huge mums. Sunflower Teddy Bear blooms from summer until the first frost, and bees and butterflies like to visit its rich in nectar flowers.
Sunflower Teddy Bear Dwarf makes a spectacular border plant in front of larger plants especially sunflowers, and this compact sunflower is one of the best for planting in large containers. Helianthus Annuus seeds can be started indoors or directly outdoors in spring. Like all sunflowers this variety prefers to grow in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil, but the plant is very adaptable to various soil types. Sunflower Teddy Bear is not only a wonderful addition to larger floral arrangements, but it looks marvelous when displayed alone in a vase.
