Organic, Heirloom.

Heirloom Beauties has something for every sunflower lover—sunny yellows of ‘Lemon Queen’, beautiful warm tones of ‘Autumn Beauty’, and deep reds of ‘Velvet Queen’. Multiple branching plants produce a multitude of blossoms for a generous amount of cut flowers and lots of pollinator activity all summer long. Excellent drought-tolerant hedge or screen. Leave some seed heads standing in the winter as a treat for the birds. 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.

2 gram seed packet.
