They're also attractive in cut-flower displays. Because of its size, Golden Bear Sunflower is ideal for planting along a fence row or in back borders. While the stems are very sturdy, they may require staking if planted in a windy area. Sunflower seeds can be started indoors or directly sown into the garden. 100 DAYS.
