Sunfinity® Yellow with Dark Center Sunflower

Make your landscape come to life with Sunfinity Sunflowers that thrive and bloom continuously all season long. Sunfinity Sunflowers have lots of blooms that can be cut and used indoors, with no mess and without damaging the outdoor plant.

Nearly a decade of effort has led to Sunfinity, the sunflower that revolutionizes the home garden experience. Sunfinity started with a desire to give the home gardener a more colorful, longer-lasting sunflower. Traditional sunflowers are either small potted plants or cut flowers with only one stem, a single flower head, and blooms lasting for only 7–10 days. Sunfinity was cultivated to have many stems with a multitude of blooms and season-long performance, making it truly unique and different from every other sunflower. 

In order to achieve these unique characteristics, we took the best attributes of two species and created what plant breeders call an interspecific hybrid.  Because we know that a beautiful garden starts with high quality plants, we work closely with commercial Sunfinity growers and greenhouses to grow the best quality plants for home gardeners.
