Tall Single. With huge flowers (often 10 or 12" inches across) these garden giants are developed for seed production (Sunflower oil, bird seed, etc.) Remember, these are the ones that grow from 8 to a whopping 12 ft. tall, so unless you're planting them alone, scatter them throughout your meadow, or use them as a background screen. Kids love watching them grow so fast and so tall, and of course, they're magnets for songbirds. David's Garden Seeds is a Veteran owned business that has been offering quality products since 2009.

I had a 90% germination rate so far and I actually had to throw some of the saps away because I had not enough space for them.
So they're great they become really big but there's an "issue": they attract aphids.
While it's somehow good because aphids fest on your sunflowers instead of let's say your carrots or tomatoes or zucchinis watermelons basils peppers, ect it's still a sad view to see them covered in thousands of aphids eating away their leaves as they grow.
I found a very easy "organic" solution: just spray some soap water on the aphids. It will block they respiratory system and kill them.
Hope it will be of assistance.
I planted these sunflowers alongside my corn patch, on a warm-bed that I created using layers of mulch, old tree branches and compost. I covered the area between the rows with burlap to minimize weeding. They were planted in an area where they got a full 8 hours of sun with minimal wind.
These are definitely bee friendly! We had a variety of bees that were sleeping on these overnight, so I think they were well received. I fertilized once in the spring and watered maybe once or twice over the year (I'm a lazy gardener).
If you're looking for something easy and stunning, these are for you! Looking forward to purchasing them next year.
I ordered these seeds on May 25, 2015. I received them 3 days later. There were 50 seeds as per the description. May 29th, I placed about 17 seeds in the ground, near our fence line, and spaced a foot apart. I followed package instructions, but read some reviews that said some seeds did not grow. It has been only a week, and I have 4 sprouts so far. I will update this review as the plants progress.
The rest of the seeds I am experimenting with: On June 4, I soaked 10 seeds in water for about 10 hours. After draining them, I placed them inside a damp paper towel and placed that inside a zip lock bag and closed the bag half way. I then placed the bag in a dark, cool place, such as my cupboard. June 5th, I checked on the seeds and made sure the paper towel was still damp (the seeds have not begun to sprout), and put it back in the cupboard. Today, June 6th, I checked on the seeds, and to my surprise, 6/10 seeds have begun to root. I changed out the paper towel for a fresh one, bagged it, and put it back in the cupboard.
Tomorrow I plan to put the seedlings in individual containers. Since these seeds are starting inside, I believe I have to go through the process of hardening them so that I can plant them with the others outside, which are all in full sun. I am very excited about seeing these sunflowers grow into giant plants! Assuming they survive the creatures and elements we have here in Southwest Arizona!
Thanks for the seeds! Hopefully the plants provide me with many more seeds in the future!
The potted ones are about 8' and stalks 1-1/4 diameter - shorter thinner ones to the left are previous flowers used as mulch and sprouted.
They're still growing and buds of flowers starting to form. Hoping for good things. In ground gets best results. Will post pics of flowers when they arrive and will buy from David's again.
