This may be a blend of shorter varieties, but it's not short on selection. Large and small classic sunflowers, and multi-petaled pom-pom types will brighten your garden, draw pollinators, and make cheery bouquets to embellish your indoor spaces. Branching, drought-tolerant plants will be loaded with sunny yellow blooms from summer to fall. Great in containers or as a short, annual hedge. Fantastic first-time flower for your little elves—oops!—kids to grow! Sunflowers are edible, with a bittersweet flavor. The petals add a pretty pop of color on salads and desserts. The young, sunflower buds are edible, with a flavor similar to artichoke hearts. They can be grilled, marinated, or sauteed for an unusual appetizer or side dish.

Unhappy

I got to plant the sunflower seeds this week- five rows, each about 4 feet in length- a total of about 20 feet. When I opened the package I was dismayed to see only about 25 seeds. This was far short of what I needed. I feel that I did not get value for my money.

Owner Response: Hi Chris, We are so sorry your packet was short. It is rare but our machines can make an error. We are happy to replace the seeds. A customer service agent will contact you shortly.

Thank you
