Description

The first dwarf Mexican sunflower with more blooms and less plant

All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2000

Until Fiesta del Sol Mexican Sunflower Seeds came along, we didn't really believe it was possible to get more blooms per plant on super-floriferous Mexican sunflowers. This AAS-winning dwarf has proved us wrong. Instead of adding blooms (though it may have done a little of that, too), Fiesta del Sol simply is a smaller plant, so the blooms arise even more thickly amid handsome dark green foliage.

Masses of 2- to 3-inch deep orange blooms arise all summer long on this workhorse. As they fade, they are quickly replaced by new blooms, so the Fiesta del Sol Mexican Sunflower plants always looks neat and freshly-blooming.

This Fiesta del Sol Mexican Sunflower plant is impervious to heat, humidity, drought, and even deer—just about every nuisance of the summer garden you can imagine. A great choice for the South, where the humidity envelops many other plants, Fiesta del Sol is a butterfly magnet wherever it grows. Plant this sun-lover in the blazing-hot garden and enjoy the long summer show.
