'Strawberry Blonde' Sunflowers Have Stunning Pink Gradient Petals

Brittany Rae 6 Apr 2020

This may be hard to believe, but sunflowers aren't just yellow! In fact, they come in one of the best colors out there: pink!

Strawberry blonde sunflowers are definitely going to be your next gardening project. No, trust me. You're gonna want some.

See?

How pretty are they? Strawberry blonde sunflowers, aka Helianthus annuus, are actually pretty common! They're easy to grow and easy to care for, which makes them perfect for beginner gardeners.

These bad boys get pretty tall, too.

We're talking human-size. They average between five - six feet, which means you may need to give them a bit of support if they get up that high. Wooden dowels, it's your time to shine!

They bloom within two - four months of you planting them, too!

The range seems to be 55 - 100 days, depending on the conditions and your individual sunflowers.

Speaking of conditions, these sunflowers prefer full sun (duh), and moist, well-drained soil. Try to keep them away from windy locations.

So, are you going to plant some of your own?

If I had a garden, I'd definitely pair some strawberry blonde sunflowers with succulents and big, leafy plants.

Nothing ushers in spring and summer like gorgeous flowers that will perk up your mood as soon as you see them.
