Helianthus annuus 'Autumn Beauty' is a cultivar of the common sunflower, Helianthus annuus, renowned for its striking array of colorful blooms. Here are some key features and characteristics of this cultivar:

Appearance: 'Autumn Beauty' sunflowers typically grow to a height of 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters), although they may reach up to 8 feet (2.4 meters) under optimal conditions. The plants produce multiple branching stems, each adorned with large, vibrant flowers.

Flowers: One of the most notable features of 'Autumn Beauty' sunflowers is their diverse range of colors. The flowers can exhibit shades of yellow, orange, bronze, mahogany, and burgundy, often with contrasting centers. These multicolored blooms add a dynamic and visually stunning element to gardens and landscapes.

Blooming Period: As the name suggests, 'Autumn Beauty' sunflowers typically bloom in late summer to early autumn, although the exact timing may vary depending on growing conditions and location.

Cultivation: Like other sunflowers, 'Autumn Beauty' cultivars thrive in full sun and well-drained soil. They are relatively low-maintenance and can tolerate a range of soil types. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry periods, to support robust growth and flowering.

Uses: 'Autumn Beauty' sunflowers are popular choices for adding vibrant color and visual interest to gardens, borders, and floral arrangements. The tall stems and abundant blooms make them excellent cut flowers for bouquets and flower arrangements.

Wildlife Attraction: Sunflowers, including 'Autumn Beauty' cultivars, are known for their wildlife-attracting qualities. The large, nectar-rich flowers attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators, making them valuable additions to pollinator-friendly gardens.

Seed Production: In addition to their ornamental value, sunflowers produce edible seeds that are highly nutritious and popular for snacking. 'Autumn Beauty' sunflowers can also be grown for seed production, providing a sustainable food source for both humans and wildlife.
