Does this flower only grow in England?

United States Us

I can't seem to find any information about this flower and I'd like to use it for my wedding. Anything will help-where it grows, price, season, etc.! Thank you!!

On plant Claret Sunflower




It looks to be a red sunflower Katscinto. Depending on variety it can grow anywhere from 2 to 10 feet tall. Check the seed varieties at your garden centre....they should have them or at least be able to point you in the right direction.
Prado Red, Moulin Rouge and Red Sun are 3 varieties that I know of.

You will need a big jar to put them in, I grow lots of them as I'm trying to encourage Bullfinches into the garden.

oooh looks like a queen velvet sunflower I had some this year
gorgeous colour, you can get seeds for these quite easily, presumably they are summer flowers, cant think when mine started to flower, but mine had lots of flower heads unlike my giant yellow which only had one
so maybe you will get a whole bucket full which would be great for any wedding budget

Sounds like you need to order seed then, Kat and grow them yourself - in your spring, for flowering in the summer.
