Looking for something truly special to give the Mom in your life for this Mother’s Day? Forget bouquets or flower arrangements. Make her Mother’s Day shine by giving Mom a SunBelievable® Sunflower.

This sunny annual truly is the gift that keeps on giving, producing 1,000 blooms per plant, and adding cheery summer color to front entryways, patios, and gardens all season long. “If you really want to do something special this year with plants or flowers, give her something that’s long-lasting as well as incredibly cheery,” says Katie Tamony, chief marketing officer and trend spotter at Monrovia. “This little one-gallon plant grows into a scene stealer wherever it’s planted.”

SunBelievable® Brown-Eyed Girl Helianthus creates charming and colorful displays in containers, flower beds, borders, and other landscaping. The first sunflower to bloom continuously, SunBelievable® is easy to grow and easy to love, with happy yellow blooms backed by lush green foliage. Bees and butterflies love the nectar-rich flowers, too.

The plants do best in a location with full sun, and will grow to be three feet tall and wide. Allow the soil to dry between waterings; over-watering will reduce blooming. Promptly removing the spent blooms will encourage more prolific flowering and a longer bloom period.

“SunBelievable® sunflowers are the perfect Mother’s Day gift this year,” says Tamony. “Moms will love the bright, cheerful flowers, and each time they see one of the 1,000 blooms, they’ll be reminded of the people who appreciate and love them.”

Visit for more information, then head to your local garden center to pick up the perfect gift for Mom. Look for the SunBelievable® Mother’s Day display!
