Spread: 2.00 to 4.00 feet
Dead-heading is recommended to promote new bud growth and to keep a tidy appearance. False sunflowers make great cut flowers as well. They are clump-forming, rather than spreaders, which means dividing your plants every 2-3 years, in spring or fall, will help keep plants from dying in the centre. If you prefer a sturdier plant, as these may becoming top-heavy when overgrown, simply prune them back in spring. This will, however, delay the flowering period.
