'Italian White' Sunflower Seeds

(P) Pkt of 50 seeds
Item #00975-PK-P1


Great in arrangements or the garden

An old favorite that combines the big bloom size of giant sunflowers with the well-branched, floriferous habit of smaller daisy-formed varieties, 'Italian White' Sunflower is an elegant look for the garden or vase.

The blooms are 4 inches across on 'Italian White' Sunflower, with a deep chocolate eye, slightly ruffled white petals, and a ring of primrose between the two. These very sturdy, well-branched 5 to 7 foot plants produce an incredible number of blooms over a very long season, giving you enough to fill every vase in the house without robbing the garden of fresh, gleaming color. The long stems make these great flowers for cutting, and they are exceptionally tolerant of dry soils.

The 'Italian White' Sunflower plants are a good size for the back of the border, as well as next to outbuildings and even as stand-alone temporary screens or hedges.

Sunflowers are the kings of the natural sunny summer garden, attracting butterflies and birds. They're wonderfully easy to grow—just direct sow the large 'Italian White' Sunflower Seeds after all danger of frost. Not picky about soil type, they need direct sun. Thin the plants to 2 to 4 feet apart so that they can show off their foliage a bit as they grow.

Here's how to brighten your garden

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I love these Italian sunflowers. I plant them year round where I live in my front yard (direct sow into clay soil). This year was warm so they even made it through the winter without dying. All of my neighbors have asked me what they are, cause they're hard to miss at 5 feet tall. They really brighten a landscape and are visible at street level. Suggest if you live in a desert like me to sprinkle them amonst the cactus and ocotillo. Very low maintenance (mine are on a drip and I've never fertilized them). I deadhead them about once a week to promote growth and so they look prettier.

All seed that were planted germinated, started indoors and transplanted in April. Flowers are very pale yellow to off white and absolutely gorgeous. Very hardy, will plant more of these next year!!

The plants are beautiful and starting to put on branching and buds. Can wait for full bloom. It has been over 90 degrees each day yet they are thriving.

Beautiful Sunflowers

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Mine were not white, more like a very light pastel yellow, yet soooooo beautiful.. and several sunflowers per plant. All seeds germinated outdoors on the ground, very sturdy and does not require much watering. Definitely one of my favorites now :)
