Helianthus annus

This can’t be Helianthus tuberosus in which disc is yellow in colour and ray florets much longer. This should be Helianthus annuus only.

It is my pleasure to present a few images of Helianthus annuus  (Asteraceae 

Habit: A Tall herb 

Habitat: Cultivated 

Sighting: Chikmagalur, Karnataka, about 1200 msl 

Date: 30-07-2014, 07-07-2015 and 26-07-2015


very nice loved the buds about to unfurl. there was big push in bengal a decade ago for the farmers to plant cash crops like sunflowers but our wet weather somehow put astop to them
too much fungus growing over the saved seeds before they could be milled but organic sunflower seeds are a very good source of selenium magnesium and vitamin e, if you can get fresh seeds without the fungus attacking it

Thanks … for your feedback. Sunflower is a popular oil yielding crop in the drier parts of Karnataka. Many cultivars are popular. Attachments (1)


Nice pics …, the pollinator is fully loaded….!!


All are calendar pictures & marvellous

Again, seen in a cultivated garden.

Looks to be Helianthus annuus only.

Thanks, … To me also appears close to images at Helianthus annuus


It appears to be a short, compact plant rather than the standard tall sunflowers.
There is a purple leaf vein visible.

We cannot see the flower fully opened but you might try looking at Helianthus annuus ‘Mrs. Mars’.
Since you found this in a garden there are many other possibilities


Precisely. many possibilities. that’s the point. often cant pinpoint the cultivar

Thanks for your sharp observation and the suggested id. Really appreciate it.
You could be right, since the unopened petals also look darker in color.

Ornamental variety of H.annus.


Pl. check below as per Fleuroselect:

Paquito has a true base branching habit, it is early and a totally new type of Sunflower. Paquito is dwarf and ball shaped for pot production or low bedding.
