You Can Plant Chocolate Cherry Sunflowers And I Need Them In My Yard!

Everyone knows what a sunflower looks like right? They are the epitome of sunny day feelings.

They are bright yellow, with a dark seeded center and grow massively tall. I love them!

What I didn’t know was that you can get sunflowers that are chocolate cherry colored. The chocolate cherry sunflowers are absolutely stunning!

They grow into about a 6-inch flower head that has dark deep red petal edges, that transitions into a darker chocolate brown center.

This is a branching variety of sunflower. If you choose not to pinch them, then you can expect to get some that are 8 feet tall with a 8-inch flower head!

If you do pinch them off, then you will have a short plant that branches off with more flowers. Those flowers will have plant heads that are about 6 inches.
