Hardy Annual Seeds


Hardy annuals can be sown directly into their flowering positions in the spring and will tolerate a certain amount of cold. Well-known flowers such as sweet peas, poppies, stocks and sunflowers fall under this category, as do some of the more unusual flowers - gomphocarpus & ratibida for example.

Sunflower 'Russian Giant'

Helianthus annuus

 Customer Rating
A giant among annuals. Give them plenty of room and you will be rewarded with plants up to 3m (10ft) tall with huge yellow flowers often 30cm(12in) in diameter. Useful to grow against an unsightly shed or fence. Birds love the seeds so grow a few plants close to the house and watch them feed in the autumn. Flowers summer. Height 8-10ft.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.


Companion planting: Try growing sunflowers with chives to deter aphids.

Sunflower 'Russian Giant' - RHS Garden Explorers Children's Seeds

Helianthus annuus

 Customer Rating

I could be the tallest flower in your garden. Can you grow the tallest, sunniest sunflower? When I have finished flowering leave the flowerheads out to feed the birds over the winter. Height: 2m+.Did You Know? - Not all sunflowers are yellow or tall. Look for furry-looking teddy bear types, different colours and ones with several flowers on one stem.
