As the last cold and grey skies of winter disappear and nature begins to awaken, there is a sunny and cheerful harbinger of spring that catches our attention – Sunflowers! With golden yellow petals and a snout that constantly stares at the sky, the Sunflower symbolises warmth, positivity and the promise of many sunny days.

As the sales season of our Sunsation® potted Sunflower begins, many fans are already looking forward expectantly to the chance to bring a little sunshine into their homes and gardens… And the wait will be rewarded: from week 13, Sunsation® potted sunflowers will again be available in abundance. It promises to be a bright season!

Cheerful rays of sunshine!

An overload of blooms and colour! That is the power of Sunsation® potted sunflowers. The pollen-free flowers remain beautiful for a long time and follow each other in succession, bud after bud. You can go either way with the warm Sunsation® Yellow, the fresh Lemon or the flamed Flame. Sunsation® Yellow and Flame are well available as Multi flower varieties this season. Sunsation® Multi flower are pinched plants with a well-branching plant structure. Multiple flowers bloom simultaneously, for even more sunshine. The variety of pot sizes also brings flexibility. With pot sizes ranging from 9 to 25 cm pots, Sunsation® offers a variety of possibilities from impulse purchases to gift items and promotional sales.

NEW this season: Sunsation® Compact!

A more responsible choice when it comes to potted sunflowers: Sunsation® Compact. This is because the genetically compact Sunsation® varieties (Yellow and Lemon) are grown without PGR or high EC levels. This results in balanced, stress-free potted sunflowers, without chemical residues of growth regulators. And this is clearly reflected in the healthy, smooth fresh green leaves. Sunsation® Compact is available for the first time this season via CM Kester, Adrichem Potplanten and Kwekerij Het Loo.

Always a party with Sunsation®

For many years, the Sunsation® growers’ collective has supported Nationale Vereniging de Zonnebloem (Dutch association for people with physical disabilities, especially those at risk of social isolation). This year, the association celebrates its 75th anniversary and of course Sunsation® does not let this go unnoticed. During the annual visit of the participants and volunteers of De Zonnebloem to Keukenhof, a bright surprise awaits them! Spring park Keukenhof also celebrates its 75th anniversary this year – a double celebration! We are adding to the revelry by bringing our sunflowers to the Willem Alexander pavilion at the park. We’ll tell you more about this very soon! Keep an eye on the Sunsation® website and sign up for the Sunsation newsletter to receive updates about all the sunny actions and events during the new Sunsation® sales season.


The Sunsation® growers’ collective is happy to think along with you about added value and promotional campaigns. Would you like to know more about the possibilities, the Sunsation® growers’ collective or our new Sunsation® Compact? Get in touch with Evanthia.
