Scarcely a foot high, this thrilling new Sunflower sports enormous lemon-yellow blooms on well-branched plants. Ultra-dwarf and packed with flower power, it is our old favorite "fourth sister" (from the Native American Three Sisters companion plants) in a lovely new close-up form!
It sets a very large bloom on the central stalk, accompanied by numerous smaller ones on the side-shoots. The foliage is a handsome rich, dark green so intense it looks black from a distance. The plant branches young and sets numerous buds on its side shoots, giving you more blooms than you might think possible.To say that Choco Sun has created a sensation in Europe is to put it mildly. This is a plant that seemed to grace every doorstep this summer, each one more beautiful than the one before it.
