Birds love the seeds—and so will you

Has there ever been a sunflower as lovely as Velvet Queen Sunflower, with its shades of yellow, orange, and red ringed around a large, glittering black center? Measuring up to 8 inches across and very, very freely borne all summer long, these flowers are unforgettable in the garden or vase. When we grew Velvet Queen Sunflowers in our trial gardens, crowds formed around its tall stalks. You will fall in love with this sunset of colors too.

Velvet Queen Sunflower really does look like a setting sun, with its play of warm colors and huge size. These flowers arise on 4- to 5-foot stalks—a manageable size for the bed, border, or even vegetable garden, and just right for lining up along a fence or wall. The bloom is heaviest in midsummer, but you will find both early and late comers among Velvet Queen's blooms, keeping your vases full and your garden ablaze for many weeks.

Sunflowers are among the easiest of all annuals to grow from seed. Wait until the soil warms in spring, then simply push the large seeds into the earth, water them well, and wait for the thick, Jack-and-the-Beanstalk-like stem to arise. Perfect for a child's first garden or a seasoned landscaper's prize display, Velvet Queen Sunflowers will delight you. Plant it in plenty of sun and normal to dry soil.
