Care & Harvest

✂️ Pruning: Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod. To encourage new flower bud development, remove any yellowing leaves along with fading flower heads by snipping at flowers’ individual stems, known as deadheading. 

 

🔎 Plant Health: Aphids are a common pest, but you can use our prevention tricks to keep pests at bay!

 

🌻 Harvest: To use the flower petals, harvest by snipping off flowers at their individual stems, then plucking the petals from the flower head. To enjoy as a cut flower, harvest by cutting the flower just before it blooms, when the petals are close to opening, and place in water. Alternatively, you can place the whole plant in a Gardyn Vase to enjoy its beauty in any room, cut-free!

Quick Facts

Sunflowers are native to North America, first cultivated by Indigenous Americans over 4,500 years ago. Their English name comes from the plant’s tendency to turn toward the sun throughout the day, following it across the sky. The flower is associated with happiness, positivity, and hope.

This pollen-free, seedless hybrid flower quickly produces stunning, bi-colored petals with a beautiful red center that transitions to bright, yellow tips. When pruned attentively, Bi-Color Sunflowers create 3-4 waves of blooms! The flower petals are edible and have a slightly bittersweet, nutty flavor. The petals contain vitamins A, C, and E, plus carotenoids, which drive their color.

Enjoy the summer vibes of this iconic flower any time of year on your Gardyn or in any room with the Gardyn Vase. Try Bi-Color Sunflowers’ edible petals as a beautiful garnish by adding them to your favorite dish or drink for a delicious, nutty flavor.
