Colorful Autumn Beauty Sunflower Pictures

Some of the most incredibly colorful sunflower blossoms are of the variety Autumn Beauty. When I originally thought about planting sunflowers seeds for my flower garden, I was familiar with the typical yellow sunflower blossoms. I never fully realized just how beautiful and colorful the Autumn Beauty variety is.

I started my sunflower garden on March 2, 2013. Today, I am experiencing so many colorful sunflower blossoms blooming. The Autumn Beauty sunflower will reportedly grow to 7 ft. and possibly more. At the moment, my tallest plant, shown directly below, had reached 75 inches on Monday, May 20, 2013.

Update: May 25, 2012 Jacksonville, Florida : The tallest Autumn Beauty sunflower plant has now hit 80 inches! It is still standing upright, whilst the other tall plant has now begun to bend over from the weight of the blossom!

Each of the colorful sunflower blossoms are like works of art of vivid oranges, yellows, and browns. Compare these blossoms to the other, more typical yellow sunflower blossoms pictures that I've shared. Don't these beautiful flowers make you want to grown your own sunflower flower garden?

If you are considering planting sunflower seeds, be sure to check out Burpee Sunflower Seeds on Amazon. What a great testament to the power of Burpee sunflower seeds! The proof is in the blossom(s).

  1. Those are gorgeous. Sunflowers were always my favorite flowers to see in the late summer in Colorado.

    Burpee's HQ is within walking distance of where I'm staying (my parents'/brothers' house). I wonder if they sell seeds there; there's a bit of room on the side of the house... :)

  2. Thanks Meg! Yeah, I personally had no idea how beautiful these blossoms could be. I'm watching how big and heavy those Autumn Beauty blossoms can get. Pretty amazing!

    Oh, you are so lucky to be near Burpee's HQ!

  3. These are beautiful Julie :) We planted some but they haven't bloomed yet, although the stalks are almost 4 feet tall. I don't know when/if they will bloom, or what kind they are, but I sure hope they look like yours. Love the Autumn colors.
