Product Details

This may be a blend of shorter varieties, but it's not short on selection. Large and small classic sunflowers, and multi-petaled pom-pom types will brighten your garden, draw pollinators, and make cheery bouquets to embellish your indoor spaces. Branching, drought-tolerant plants will be loaded with sunny yellow blooms from summer to fall. Great in containers or as a short, annual hedge. Fantastic first-time flower for your little elves—oops!—kids to grow! Sunflowers are edible, with a bittersweet flavor. The petals add a pretty pop of color on salads and desserts. The young, sunflower buds are edible, with a flavor similar to artichoke hearts. They can be grilled, marinated, or sauteed for an unusual appetizer or side dish.
