  • Information
  • Helianthus annuus. Originally a North American native, it is said that the Mormons strew Sunflower seeds along their journey to Utah so that others could follow their sunny path months later. Easy to grow in bright sunlight, our varieties have smaller centers and unusual color combinations. Direct-sow in well-draining soil with good sunlight every three weeks after the last spring frost date for continual blooms throughout the summer. Bee friendly. Deer resistant. Annual.

    Average seed life: 5 years.
