  • History & Lore
    History:
    Sunbelievable™ Brown Eyed Girl Helianthus took third place in the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year competition, recognized for its phenomenal flower power and excellent garden performance. It is a sterile, non-invasive hybrid; this non-seed producing trait allows it to put its energy into prolific flowering. It is a day length neutral hybrid, which essentially means it will bloom even on shorter days towards the end of the season.
