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.

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

Not as advertised

I love Botanical interest seeds, and they are the only seeds I buy. I think it's fun to try new blends, however- the last two blends of sunflower packets I have planted were full of only one type of sunflower seed and what appears to be 75% amaranth seed. Super bummed that this has happened twice - and with two completely different style blends!
Katie from CA
Owner Response: Hi Katie, Thanks for sharing your feedback. A customer service agent will be contacting you regarding the seed diversity in the blends your chose. As for the amaranth, it is a common garden weed with tiny, shiny seeds (nothing like sunflower seeds). Garden weed seeds like several types of amaranth are often stored in the soil ("seed bank") and come to the surface when the soil is cultivated and germinate when watered. There are many types of weedy amaranth and the seeds are often enjoyed and spread by birds. I sure hope that helps.

Beautiful flowers

Cute As Cute Can Be

I bought the Elves Blend sunflowers for my preschooler to grow. He enjoyed planting, watering, and weeding. He especially loved picking me a fresh bouquet for the kitchen windowsill each week. They were as cute as cute can be, and we will certainly be ordering more. I would say we had a perfect germination rate also.

Outstanding plants

I absolutely LOVE sunflowers, but they can be extremely tall. I planted these in a pot on my patio and they were the perfect height. They all came up and the variety of blooms was just what I wanted. I ordered more seed to be able to share as well as grow these again...they're keepers in my garden for sure.

I planted this blend Spring 2020 in a large pot to bring us some cheer. They did AMAZING and we had so many blooms. My toddler loved it! I have bought several times since then and always have lovely, cheery blooms.

I wish I could upload photos. AMAZING. I have over 1 dozen bright lemon yellow blooms on one 3ft plant!!! Some of them are larger than my hand. Another plant also has a dozen blooms and has beautiful red rings on the petals. They look amazing with zinnias.
