Plant details

Helianthus annuus 'Music Box' produces bi-coloured sunflowers with yellow and bronze-orange petals. It's ideal for growing towards the back of a herbaceous border, and makes an excellent cut flower.  

Like all sunflowers, Helianthus annuus 'Music Box' is a hungry plant – add plenty of well-rotted manure or garden compost before planting, and water regularly. Grow in full sun in fertile, moist but well-drained soil. You may need to stake it in exposed gardens.
