Helianthus annuus Lemon Cutie

Meet Lemon Cutie! This Helianthus annuus has it all. Not only is it a dwarf variety with multiple branches, but you have also never seen such stunning and unusual semi-double, lemon-coloured flowers on a sunflower. Lemon Cutie is perfect for urban areas such as small patches along sidewalks, on balconies or in containers and also looks wonderful in larger beds or even in landscaping. It has excellent germination and can be offered in seed packets, sold as plugs or grown in pots.

Growers will love this naturally compact variety which is easy to produce without growth retardants. The well-branched plants with multiple lemon-coloured heads will be a showstopper on the benches and consumers will marvel over this non-traditional sunflower with unique plant habit and flower shape. Lemon Cutie might be just a small plant, but the many flowers will bring a big smile to your face!

Lemon Cutie, fresh and adorable
