Unlike traditional sunflowers, these keep on growing long after traditional single-stem sunflowers have bloomed and died. syngentaflowers.com Golden Butterfly™ It’s tough to improve on one of the most well-known and longest running annual varieties in our lineup, but we’ve done it this year with ‘Golden Butterfly’ Argyranthemum frutescens, which replaces ‘Butterfly.’ This improved cultivar delivers the same heat tolerance and all-season bloom, but with even greater flower power and stronger yellow colouration. It runs toe to toe with the others in the collection including ‘Pure White Butterfly™’ which was new in 2017 and ‘Vanilla Butterfly™ Improved’ which is also new this year.
