In just 110 days from direct sowing, this HEIRLOOM grows 3.6m (12′) tall. Its 60cm (24″) flowers produce delicious and nutritious sunflower seeds, or they can be dried and hung in the garden as a natural bird feeder. Titan sunflower seeds are one of the tallest sunflower varieties available. Plants form a massive trunk and very sturdy root system. We recommend direct sowing over transplanting with the larger sunflower varieties, so that root growth can be continuous and undisturbed. We have never had to stake Titan sunflowers, even in windy gardens.

Helianthus annuus
Family: Asteraceae


Exposure: Full sun

Direct sow September to late October. Starting indoors is possible, but does not gain much time. If sunflowers are allowed to get root-bound, they will lack stability at transplant time, and will require staking. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 21-30°C (70-85°F). Seeds should sprout in 10-14 days.

Sow seeds 5mm-1cm  (¼-½”) deep. Space dwarf varieties 15cm (6″) apart, but give the giants lots of room at 1m (3′) between plants.

When the back of the flower head turns yellow, it is ready to be cut from the plant.

Companion Planting
Sunflowers planted near rows of corn are said to increase yields. Aphids may be herded by ants onto sunflowers without causing the plants any harm. Sunflowers can be used to draw heavy metals, toxins, and even radiation from soil, but should be burned at the end of the season if grown for this purpose.
