Vincent®

Sunflower

Helianthus annuus F1

This series is a major step forward in sunflower breeding. Vincent® was bred to be less sensitive to day length for greater flexibility in programming, allowing growers to produce high quality crops early, mid and late season. Although there is better height under short days, Vincent does not get too tall under long days. This sunflower series is also well suited for producing dwarf type flowers for bouquets. The Vincents have strong seedling and plant vigor and produce pollenless flower heads that face upward on strong stems and necks.

Vincent’s Choice features the well-loved combination of a brown center and deep orange petals while Vincent’s Fresh has a crisp, green center which is a clear alternative to current selections. Both Vincents have an extra ring of rounded, overlapping petals for better filled, more attractive flower heads and an increased percentage of saleable stems.

  • Pollen free and day length-neutral for year round production
  • High germ, short crop cycle and tight flowering window
  • Small upper leaves make Vincent ideal for bouquets
  • Strong neck and facing upward flowers
  • Early, mid late season - top germination and vigor under cool conditions
  • Round, overlapping flower petals create a semi-double look
