Dwarf Sunflowers Guide: Varieties, Care, and Tips

I’ve always loved sunflowers, and when I learned there were dwarf sunflower varieties, I was over the moon. I could finally have pots of sunshine in my house. This meant I could admire the prettiness of the dwarf sunflowers all day long, and not only when I was outside and spending time in my yard.

I’ve made mistakes here and there as I learned all about growing dwarf sunflowers, but with this dwarf sunflower guide, you can learn from my mistakes.

A win-win, right?

Learn about these miniature versions of the giant sunflowers we all know (and love). I cover different dwarf sunflower varieties, a complete care guide, tips for growing these beauties, and common problems and solutions.

My Bottom Line Up Front: The Best Dwarf Sunflower

Choosing the best dwarf sunflower isn’t an easy choice. But I finally decided on a winner, or shall I say it’s a tie between four dwarf sunflower varieties?

I love the Elf sunflowers because they are the smallest of the dwarf sunflowers, AND they attract butterflies.

Then there are the Florenza sunflowers with bright reddish-orange petals and mild chocolate scent, and the Double Dandy sunflowers with deep cherry halo and light reddish-cream petal tips. I’m also enamored with the Little Becka sunflowers with a double halo.

What Are Dwarf Sunflowers?

Dwarf Sunflower

Dwarf sunflowers are mini versions of traditional, larger sunflowers, native to North America. These miniature sunflowers are hybrids and the result of selective breeding. We all know how bright and stunning large sunflowers are, whether you’ve seen them grow in fields or in someone’s backyard. So I wouldn’t blame you if you thought the dwarf varieties would lack vibrancy.

Honestly? Dwarf sunflowers are just as vibrant, charming, and cheery.

Sunflowers look like daisies for a reason – they belong to the daisy family of Asteraceae. Their scientific name is Helianthus annuus.

Their larger counterparts come in various colors, from yellow and orange to pink, red, and purple. At the same time, dwarf sunflowers can be found in shades of yellow, orange, cream, pink, and red. Some cultivars even have bi-colored flowers.

Dwarf sunflowers grow to a height of 6-48 inches (0.5-4 feet); they grow taller in your yard than when potted.

Most dwarf sunflowers are annuals, meaning they have a year’s life cycle, and once it dies, that’s it. However, it can resprout from seeds that have been dropped in the soil. Perennial varieties come back every year, provided they grow in the right conditions.

40 Dwarf Sunflower Varieties

There are various dwarf sunflower cultivars. Here are the 40 most popular varieties to consider for your garden or indoor spaces:

1. Teddy Bear Sunflowers

Teddy Bear Sunflowers

Height: 12-24 inches

The pollenless Teddy Bear dwarf sunflower (also called the Sungold Dwarf sunflower) looks like a fluffy pom-pom. The dense double fluffy flowers are bright yellow-orange and grow 3-5 inches wide. The Teddy Bear features multi-stems and multi-headed blooms.

Use the petals over your green salads or cake decorating to add vibrant color to your naked or minimalist cake.

Seeds take 7-14 days to germinate. Space the Teddy Bear sunflower 24-48 inches apart.

2. Elf Sunflowers

elf sunflowers

Height: 14-16 inches

The smallest dwarf sunflower is the Elf, which only grows to a maximum height of 16 inches. The Elf sunflower also spreads 6-8 inches wide.

The tiny 4-inch-wide gold flowers are adorable, and best of all, they attract butterflies. (I’m sure you can guess by now that I’ve planted a ton of these in pots and placed them in and around my house.)

3. Yellow Pygmy Sunflowers

Dwarf Sunflower

Height: 18-22 inches 

The Yellow Pygmy sunflower is another tiny sunflower variety. Yellow Pygmy sunflowers grow classic-shaped sunflower blooms in lemon yellow that’s offset against their darker center discs.

For a reddish dwarf sunflower, the Double Dandy fits the bill. The Double Dandy sunflower has 4-5-inch wide semi-double flowers with a black center and deep cherry/burgundy red. The tips of the petals are lighter, like a reddish cream. Multiple flowers grow from one stem.

Your Dwarf Sunflower Growing and Care Guide

Dwarf Sunflowers

Planting, growing, and caring for dwarf sunflowers follow the same requirements as their larger counterparts.

Here’s all the information you need to know to ensure your dwarf sunflowers grow well and receive all the care they need.

Caring for Dwarf Sunflowers: Quick Cheat Sheet

USDA Plant Hardiness Zones  Zones 2-11
Where to Grow Indoors and outdoors


Pots, containers, planters, and garden beds

Days for Seeds to Germinate 7-14 days
Plant Spacing Requirements  Minimum of 8-12 inches
Temperature Requirements  Day: 70-80°F


Night: 50-60°F

Light Requirements  Full sun (6-8 hours a day)
Soil Requirements  Nutrient rich, well draining with a pH range of 6-7.5.


Ideal soil is sandy loam

Fertilizer Requirements  Well-balanced, slow-release, all-purpose fertilizer fed once during the growing season

Dwarf Sunflower Growing Zones and Temperature Requirements

Dwarf sunflowers grow best when planted in USDA plant hardiness zones 2-11, which includes most of the USA. These flowers need a daily temperature range of 70-80°F (21-27°C) and a nightly temperature range of 50-60°F (10-16°C).

The warmer the temperature and the more sun these flowers are exposed to, the more the dwarf sunflower will branch or spread. In contrast, cooler temperatures and less sun exposure cause the dwarf sunflower to be more dwarfish.

Dwarf Sunflower Light Requirements

Dwarf sunflowers love the sun, and they need the sun to flourish. These plants need between 6-8 hours of full sunlight a day.

Dwarf Sunflower Soil Requirements

The best soil for dwarf sunflowers is natural soil or a potting mix that’s nutrient-rich and well-draining. When planting your dwarf sunflowers in pots and containers, ensure these are well-draining with ample drainage holes at the bottom, so the roots don’t become waterlogged and start to rot.

Ideally, the soil should be alkaline with a pH range of 6-7.5, but if your soil is slightly acidic, the sunflowers will be okay.

Ensure the soil isn’t too rich in nitrogen, which will cause the plant to focus on growing leaves rather than the sunflowers. Keep this in mind when fertilizing the plants.

The roots of the mini sunflower are generally shorter than their large relatives, so they don’t grow very deep into the soil.

Plant sunflowers in sandy loam soil, but note the plants tolerate silty clay loam or clay loam soils.

Dwarf Sunflower Water Requirements

You need to give your dwarf sunflowers a moderate amount of water. Remember that if you plant these flowers in pots and containers, they’ll need to be watered more frequently than if they are planted in your garden beds.

Don’t overwater the sunflowers as this leads to various diseases and root rot. Dwarf sunflowers are relatively drought-tolerant, so water the plants well about once a week.

If the dwarf sunflower is still young, water the plant near the root zone, so 3-4 inches around the root crown. Once the dwarf sunflower has matured, which usually happens in 85-95 days (unless the sunflower matures early), water deeply.

If you aren’t sure when to water, I recommend checking the top inch of the soil. If the soil is dry, water; if the soil is moist, hold off watering for a day or two and then check again.

Dwarf Sunflower Fertilizing Requirements

You don’t need to worry about fertilizing your dwarf sunflowers too much or too often. Feed the dwarf sunflowers a balanced, slow-release, all-purpose fertilizer once during the growing season.

Dwarf Sunflower Pruning Requirements

There’s no need to prune dwarf sunflowers as it doesn’t have any benefit. However, if you want more flowers and the flowers to last longer during summer, then deadhead the dwarf sunflowers. Also, remove any brown or yellow leaves so the dwarf sunflowers can always look their best.

Tips to Grow Dwarf Sunflowers Successfully

Dwarf Sunflowers

Follow these planting tips to ensure your dwarf sunflower varieties grow well:

  • Choose a spot where the dwarf sunflowers will receive 6-8 hours of direct sun every day.
  • Plant the dwarf sunflower seeds during late spring once you are sure there won’t be more frost.
  • Pick a well-draining container or pot, and add well-draining soil. If you are planting sunflowers in your garden, ensure the soil will drain well and is nutrient-rich.
  • Water the soil, ensuring it stays moist until planting and throughout the germination process (which takes about 7-14 days).
  • Plant the dwarf sunflower seeds half an inch into the soil.
  • Meet all the dwarf sunflower needs so your plants can grow well.

Many dwarf sunflower varieties are perfect for flower arrangements because their stems aren’t too long, and the compact flowers aren’t likely to droop.

Follow these tips for cutting the flowers:

  • When the dwarf sunflowers have fully bloomed, cut the flowers in the morning when they are fresh.
  • Use sterilized garden shears, and wear gloves and long sleeves as the stems and leaves can cause skin irritation because of their prickly surface.
  • As you cut the flowers, place them in a container filled with water.
  • Once all the dwarf sunflowers have been cut, recut the stem under running water.
  • Place the flowers in a vase in a sunny spot.
  • Change the water in the vase every few days, and recut the stems as needed to extend the life of the dwarf sunflowers.

Common Dwarf Sunflower Problems and Solutions

Various diseases, wildlife, and pests can negatively affect the growth of your dwarf sunflower. You’ve already taken preventative measures by ensuring the plants receive the right amount of sun and water, that the soil drains well, and that the flowers are well-spaced when planting.

Question: How Tall do Dwarf Sunflowers Get?

Answer: Dwarf sunflowers typically grow 6-48 inches (or 0.5-4 feet) in height. Their height depends on the variety of dwarf sunflower and growing conditions. In comparison, medium-sized sunflowers typically grow to a height of 60-72 inches (5-6 feet), and large sunflowers grow to heights of 144 inches (15 feet).

Question: Should I Deadhead Dwarf Sunflowers?

Answer: If you want your garden to look oh-so-pretty without spent blooms marring the beauty, you should deadhead dwarf sunflowers. Deadheading promotes re-blooming, encouraging your dwarf sunflowers to grow more and extending the flowers’ growing season.
When you pinch off spent blooms or deadhead, the dwarf sunflower’s energy is channeled to produce more flowers rather than seed production. You essentially trick the sunflower variety to produce more flowers.

Question: Can You Grow Dwarf Sunflowers in Pots?

Answer: Dwarf sunflowers are perfect for growing in your garden or in pots (both indoors or outdoors). Be sure to only plant one seed of a dwarf sunflower in a six-inch pot, and plant three seeds in a gallon pot. Follow the best care requirements for your dwarf sunflowers to optimally grow so you can enjoy their pretty flowers.
