Goldy Honey Bear has thick, multi-branching stalks that stay upright without staking. Green centers are revealed as the 5"–7" flowers open. As they mature, the blooms become fully double, solid gold, and surrounded by sun-like ray petals. In ideal conditions, these nearly pollenless flowers may grow so large that just one will fill an entire vase! Long-blooming display for a flower border, hedge, or screen. You may even recognize these unique sunflowers from Vincent van Gogh's famous Sunflowers paintings! 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.

So cute!

5 out of 5 stars Jan 24, 2020
These sunflowers are just so delightful. They are so unique and people always comment on them. They grew very well in Colorado and lasted a very long time. Even though they didn't attract as many pollinators as the other sunflowers, they were a great visual addition to my flower garden. Highly recommend!

Favorite sunflower!

These are my new favorite sunflowers! They get tall to act as a fence hedge, and produce so many flowers heads - it's absolutely gorgeous. One plant had 25 flowers on it at one time! Special note- make sure to stake these early for more support.

The seeds came up, got to nearly 3 feet with a rabbit fence around them only to have the budding flowers eaten by deer. Oh well!

They grew so tall with hardly any care on my part. I filled the soil a bit before planting, they even survived my dogs trampling a little bit. Grew strong without support.

Would love to review, but none of the seeds came up after planting. Very disappointed in these seeds.

Owner Response: Hi Michael, We are sorry you had difficulty germinating these seeds. A customer service agent will be contacting you by email to help. There are a few reasons home germination might not match the laboratory test germination results including soil temperature, moisture, and in the case of sunflowers they are highly sought after by wildlife and covering the area can help protect them. Happy gardening!
