Fun and easy to grow from seed, this wonderfully rewarding Sunflower ‘Astra Gold’ is a joy to grow for children and adults alike. It has the distinctive and much-loved look of a classic sunflower but with an intriguing ring of ruffled petals for a touch of extra pizzazz. Fast growing, this tall variety makes an impressive impact at the back of a border, and is also a good one for simply dotting around here and there to give that relaxed, cottage garden feel. Give them a sunny spot in a sheltered location and you can enjoy their vibrant flowers all summer long. Height: 150-175cm (5-6ft). Spread: 30cm (12").
