In Bloom: ‘Starburst Greenburst’

Growing ‘Starburst Greenburst’ sunflower for the first time was such as pleasant surprise. I have always been a fan of sunflower varieties with green centers. Though they aren’t as traditional in appearance, I love how fresh they look. This cultivar was certainly no exception.

Plants produced large blooms with the one foot spacing in my beds. Though some of the plants did produce branches, most seemed to behave as a single stem type.

Though ‘Starburst Greenburst’ sunflowers seemed to be a favorite among pollinators, there was very little actual damage done by insects. They were also really easy to use in cut flower donations.

What do you think? Have you ever grown ‘Starburst Greenburst’ sunflowers before? I’d love to hear more about your experiences down in the comment section below. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit the blog! I hope that you’re having a great day!

  1. Hello from central KY! Love these sunflowers! I planted Starburst Greenburst last summer, with moderate success. I planted Autumn Beauty next to them, and really think my Starbursts were shaded by them. Although I did harvest a few (mine did branch), the Autumn Beauty sunflowers produced much better. I planted both varieties again this year, separating their locations. No harvest yet! In addition to a cool spring and slow start, we have had several severe storms with wind and hail that damaged many annuals in my cutting garden. Most of my life, I lived in western KY, and find the temps are usually several degrees warmer year round. My fingers are crossed🤞🏼. Yours are beautiful! Thank you for sharing 💛🌻 💛
