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.

Deer ate them

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.

Can't Review

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!

Planted only two (2) seeds of Goldy Honey Bear in fresh garden soil. My goal was to see if they would germinate and grow in this area of our small backyard. Within 3 days, the seeds began to grow. Our expectations were far exceeded and now the Honey Bear plant is just under 5 feet tall and still growing, with large 5" to 7" diameter flowers. Will be planting many more in the spring of 2023. Your seeds are great, thanks.

Most requested seed recommendation!

I wish I could attach a photo. These sun flowers are simply stunning. I was given seeds years ago that resulted in giant puffball sunflowers but no name! I tried every variety of "tall" teddy bear or puffball sunflower I could get my hands on and these seeds are the only ones that 100% live up to their description. Tall with an abundance of big beautiful flowers from mid summer through the first frost, these robust beauties have been the focal point of our community garden flower beds and have been planted in pride of place outside my office picture window for several years now. I grow hundreds of flowers every year for my home and the community garden I manage. Zinnias, petunias, salvia, penstemons, the list is long. However the flowers I am asked about the most are these. In fact, they are the ONLY flower I've grown that I've watched people buy seeds for from their phone while I chat with them. If in doubt, try them. You won't be disappointed.
