Sunflower (Mongolian Giant)

$3.00

Late summer and fall bloomers, sunflowers are the sentinels of the garden, loved by children and birds alike. Cultivated by southwestern Native peoples as early as 3000 B.C., then taken to Europe by the Spanish around 1500 A.D. It’s likely that they will self-seed next year if left in the garden over winter.

Yellow 16–18” flowers are stuffed with 1.5” seeds. To harvest seeds (90 days), _cut the heads off after their backs turn yellow and hang them upside down to dry. May need staking, as the heads are heavy and the root ball is small.
