Product Description
Garden beds, back borders and indoor arrangements get a boost of color and style with Rouge Royale Sunflower. This branching type sunflower produces plenty of rich burgundy-red flowers with deep, dark centers beginning in midsummer and continuing for several weeks. The blooms grow to an impressive 4-5 inches across and are free of allergy-inducing pollen. Like most sunflowers, Rouge Royale is a tall annual plant, reaching 5-6 feet in height, making it the perfect choice for adding vertical interest to foundation plantings or as an anchor plant in a colorful children's garden. Sow sunflower seeds directly into the soil. Choose a full-sun site for best results.
