A unique take on the classic garden favorite, Moonshine Sunflower illuminates the summer garden with large, pale yellow blooms and black centers. Growing to be about 5-6’ feet, this variety is perfect for the back of the garden or planted alongside a fence for a dramatic look. Pollinators love this Sunflower and it makes for a fantastic cut summer flower – we recommend trying a simple look by placing a single stem in a mason jar.

But not all sunflowers are 6 feet tall; there are a wide range of varieties, from dwarf to wild and everything in between, making it easy for almost any gardener with a sunny spot in the garden to grow these classic favorites.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
