Flower trials with the Sunsation pot sunflower have shown that one flower blooms day and night for at least three weeks. That makes more than 500 continuous hours of sunshine. A stark contrast to the usually sunny month of August, in which the real sun “only” put in an appearance for 240 hours in 2016, according to the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI). This cheerful pot sunflower is guaranteed to deliver an extra helping of sunshine in the summer of 2017…
Like no other plant, the sunflower gives you the ultimate cheerful, summery feel. To get to know the Sunsation plant’s “sunshine rating”, the growers carried out a wide range of tests. In addition to flower trials, the effects of weather influences were also measured. The result: Sunsation flowers best outdoors in a sunny spot and is unaffected by rain and wind. With its compact habit and short height (40 cm on average), the plant stays nice and upright and goes on flowering profusely, even in bad weather.
- For an extra sunny effect, choose yellow pots.
- Paint the pots with cheerful dots or stripes!
- Several Sunsation plants together in a large pot create an even more summery atmosphere
