Why we love this flower:

  • Uses: Cut flower, beautiful feature in bouquets
  • Garden growth success: Easy

Ruby Eclipse is a pretty branching sunflower, where the side flowers are the perfect size for bouquets. This pollen-free fast flowering variety produces flowers that are a mix of dusty-rose, ruby-red and cream. One planting will produce 1 month of flowers; succession plant for a longer flowering season. 

For maximum vase life, pick the flowers just as the petals start to uncurl, and strip all leaves below water line.
