Product Description

Annual. Blooms late summer to fall. 6'-10' tall. Full sun. This is the big one! Native American flower with heads up to 12 in diameter have faces that 'follow the sun'. Grow them for a tall hedge or privacy spring, to use as cut flowers (just one would fill a vase!), or for the plentiful edible seeds for birds and humans. The young shoots are also edible as sprouts or a fresh-looking garnish, and the unopened buds may be steamed like artichokes. They have very fast growth, up to 6" a week, are drought-tolerant and long blooming. Successive sowings every 2 weeks will give you flowers into fall.

They grow! and fast! I only planted one, in late Summer (August 23rd), indoors.
It is late October and this thing is six feet tall, with elephant ear leaves
with the flower bud well advanced. It drinks water two or three glasses a day.
It's a job indoors. These things are kind of weird; the leaves go down at night
like they go to sleep. One exception; I planted a second one, a week later, in the same pot,
and it grew much slower, possibly the first plants roots took all the nutrients.
I transplanted it to a secoond pot and it has grown more but never recovered.
Oops. I left out the fact that I did have to use a wooden pole to support it.
It would fall over. Either, I did plant it too late or they can only be planted
outside in groups to support each other.

So far these are great, it will be a few months before I know if they meet up to the expected size as per the description, but I feel certain they will.
I only planted 25 so far, I will spread them out over 2 months so I can have some last blooms.
With the first 25 I have 100% germination, which blows Hirts' germination rate away.
I am very happy with these seeds.

My sunflowers seemed to come to life much later than everyone elses and certainly took longer than the directions on the package, but once the flowers popped open, they did not disappoint. I hope the seeds come to fruition before the first frost. I am not sure what took them so long to flower as the plants came up right away.

My girlfriend and I planted these in a flower bed on my apartment porch in San Diego. We followed the instructions and 4 of the 5 seeds germinated and turned into beautiful sunflowers. So cool!

only half of the seeds were usable the other half had bug holes in them. These are not the kind of holes that happen in the seed packet this is the kind that happen on the plant while the flower is blooming. I grow a lot of sunflower and I know what I'm talking about when it comes to the quality of these seeds I just hope the other half produce something but I will not hold my breath on that.
