Sunflower, “Goldy Honey Bear” Seeds
Goldy Honey Bear has thick, multi-branching stalks that stay upright without staking. Green centers are revealed as the 5″–7″ flowers open. As they mature, the blooms become fully double, solid gold, and surrounded by sun-like ray petals. In ideal conditions, these nearly pollenless flowers may grow so large that just one will fill an entire vase! Long-blooming display for a flower border, hedge, or screen. You may even recognize these unique sunflowers from Vincent van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers paintings! Sunflowers are edible, with a bittersweet flavor. The petals add a pretty pop of color ion 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.
