Good Sunflower

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought this product thinking that I could have a small, quick to bloom sunflower. And I sure was right! It germinated in less than a week,and bloomed in about a month! The only think I didn't quite like was that it only produced 1 sunflower. But don't count this product off for that, because most sunflowers only have 1 bloom. The sunflower was very hardy, surviving for 3 days when I was not able to water it. It produced many seeds, probably about 300! it grew to about 25 inches and the bloom was about 6-8 inches across. I will definitely plant this product again next year and would highly recommend this product to other people.
