How do you plant an Evening Sun Sunflower?

Sunflowers needs rich soil for good growth. They prefer full sun (though they will tolerate light shade). The taller varieties need shelter from the wind and should be placed where they won't cast unwanted shade on other plants. Don't plant out until the soil is at least 50˚ F (and preferably 60˚ F).

Regarding this, how tall do evening sun sunflowers get?

Your sunflower seeds will begin to germinate within 7 to 10 days after sowing. Plants will grow to a mature height of 6 to 8 feet tall. Space your seeds about 6 to 12 inches apart from one another. Evening Sun produces 4 to 6 inch blooms in rustic colors of red, yellow & orange, as well as bi-colors.

Also, how much sun does a sunflower need? Sunflowers need full sun; see 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day – the more the better if you are trying to grow them to their maximum potential. Choose a well-drained location, and prepare your soil by digging an area of about 2-3 feet in circumference to a depth of about 2 feet.

In this way, how do you plant a field of sunflowers?

It's best to sow sunflower seeds directly into the soil after the danger of spring frost has passed. Ideally, the soil temperature has reached 55 to 60 degrees F (13–16°C). Give plants plenty of room, especially for low-growing varieties that will branch out. Make rows about 30 inches apart.
