This delightful dwarf sunflower offers an array of benefits to growers, retailers and gardeners. Easy and economical to produce, mildew-tolerant Miss Sunshine needs fewer PGRs and will flower at a shorter height under short days. These pollen-free plants do not aggravate allergies and there is no messy pollen to drop. The 3 to 4-in. (7 to 10-cm), sunny golden-coloured blooms “face up” for big retail impact, and produce long-lasting colour for the consumer, with a fast flush of secondary flowers. Miss Sunshine is perfect for containers and mixed pots; it also makes a great indoor lifestyle plant or florist gift item, and fits well into some warm-weather landscape markets like Florida.
