Is this not the sweetest thing? Helianthus annuus Gummy Bear is real candy to the eye. Gorgeous lemon yellow, double flowers contrast beautifully with the lush green foliage and can spread up to 20 cm wide. The plants are well-shaped, uniform, and can reach a height of approx. 170 cm. 

Suited for both the professional and hobby gardening market, this newcomer offers many possibilities for middle-sized or large garden beds. Gummy Bear is also ideal for landscaping as it adds colour and height to green spaces and provides a dynamic environment. With its eye-catching lemon colour and abundant double flowers, Gummy Bear will easily conquer the heart of consumers and landscapers. The judges praised the innovative colour, attractive flowers and excellent growing performance, and therefore awarded this newcomer with the Gold Medal for 2022.
