Who can resist flowers with names like 'Apricot Twist', 'Lemon Sorbet', 'Moonshadow', and 'Peach Passion'? Also livening up this brilliant mix are 'Starburst Lemon Éclair', 'Stella Gold', 'ProCut Orange', and 'Starburst Lemon Aura'. These tall plants, some single stemmed and some branching, are ideal for the back of the garden or as a border. Plant only 10" apart to produce longer stems with smaller blooms. As pollenless hybrids, there'll be no more messy pollen drop from your gorgeous cut flower arrangements, but still plenty of nectar for pollinators. Drought tolerant, but best flower production with regular water.

Not too pleased

I was slightly disappointed in the florist's sunny bouquet as I thought there would be greater variety. I planted close to two dozen sunflowers and more than half have been sunflowers that produce sunflower seeds. Next time, I will simply buy the seeds separately. I'll need to research to determine if Botanical Interests carries sunflower seeds, seeds that produce sunflowers NOT sunflower seeds.

Owner Response: Hi Christina, We are sorry you were disappointed with this beautiful blend. These are all pollenless cultivars which means they do not produce seeds unless pollen is delivered by a pollinator, like a bee. It sounds like other pollen-producing sunflowers must have been nearby and all were enjoyed by the pollinators. To prevent pollination these sunflower need to be isolated from pollen-producing sunflowers and/or pollinators. We do carry several pollenless sunflower cultivars, but the same will be true for them also. The good news is even if plants are pollinated the flowers still excellent cutting flowers as seeds do not form until the flowers are spent. Happy gardening!

An excellent mix -- it was exciting to see each new sunflower open and discover the different varieties. I did end up with seeds, which I did not mind. I think bees were crossing them with the naturalized sunflowers in the area. Still highly recommended.
