Essentials for Success

For flourishing plants, use potting soil for potted plants or planting mix for garden beds paired with Root Zone starter fertilizer is the perfect duo to foster robust root growth and minimize transplant shock.


Bright as the sunrise, 4"–6" golden-yellow flowers on tall, sturdy stems are the backyard florist's dream come true. The Hebrew word, zohar, translates to "speldor" or "radiance", and this sunflower has both! 'Zohar' blooms just 2 months from sowing, and has an extra-long vase life (up to 12 days). With one flower per plant, sow every 2 to 4 weeks for continuous summer bloom and endless bouquets. Drought tolerant. Although pollenless, they do produce nectar for pollinators.

Variety Info

4"–6" flower has a classic brown center and golden-yellow petals that are more deeply colored around the center.


Sowing Inside

2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Sunflowers are sensitive to root disturbance; sow in biodegradable pots that can be planted directly in the ground.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date.
