Availability: In Stock

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.
