Super Sunflower Seeds Collection
Grow the "4th Sister" in Style this Season!
In this money-saving collection, you get 4 full packets of seed: 1 each of Sunflowers Zohar Organic, Cherry Rose, Giant Sungold, and Sunspot. These varieties illustrate the range of sunflower beauty very nicely: Zohar is one of the new pollen-free sunflowers, so you can cut it for the house without creating a mess (or causing anyone to sneeze!), and it reaches only 4 feet high, so it's manageable in smaller spaces. The big blooms reach 5 inches across, on average, with the classic golden petals and chocolate-brown center.
Cherry Rose beats all other sunflowers into bloom, with the first flowers opening a little more than a month after direct-sowing the seed in the warm late-spring soil. These burgundy blooms are tipped in gold and have a nearly black center. About 3 inches wide, they arise by the dozen on plants about 5 feet high. Beautiful, different, and pleasingly quick!
Giant Sungold is a showstopper, a scene-stealer, and an instant favorite of everyone lucky enough to grow it. Fully double blooms of radiant golden reach 10 inches across -- the size of dinner plates! -- with the extra petals completely hiding their seed-filled center. These plants reach for the sky, towering 7 feet high, to let the entire neighborhood know that the king of the sunflowers has arrived!
Sunspot is a classic dwarf, beloved of gardeners for decades. Just 2½ feet tall, these plants still manage to set big 10-inch blooms. Particularly irresistible to children, Sunspot is a manageable variety for new (and young!) gardeners to grow, and looks terrific in the vase.
Our sunflower collections always sell out fast, so please order yours today. The soil will be warm before you know it (at least, we hope so!) and it will be sunflower-seed planting time! Happy growing! Contains 4 packets of seed.
