Gorgeous 4"–6" sunset-hued flowers with dark centers bloom in abundance over a long bloom period to keep your garden alight with color and pollinators, and your flower vases full for many weeks. Several rich tones all on one plant! Sunflowers are edible, with a bittersweet flavor. The petals add a pretty pop of color ion 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. Multi-branching habit makes for an excellent annual screen. Sunflowers are one of the easiest flowering plants to grow and drought tolerant.
