Homeowner Growing Tips: False Sunflowers grow best in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil; tolerates short periods of drought once established. May be cut back by up to half in early June for more compact plants; this will help prevent flopping later. Red aphids sometimes appear early in summer; these generally are a nuisance more than anything serious, and may be blasted off with a stream of water, or sprayed with insecticidal soap.
