Availability: In Stock

'Rouge Royale' is a stunning, true red sunflower, on multi-branching plants. A dramatic accent in beds, borders, and arrangements. For highest quality cut flowers, planting closer together will produce longer stems and smaller flowers. For long-lasting vase life, cut before flower is completely open. 'Rouge Royale' doesn't drop its pollen making it all beauty and no mess. 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 sautéed for an unusual appetizer or side dish. Drought tolerant once established.

Dark and multiple flowers

5 out of 5 stars Jul 24, 2020
Moulin Rouge Sunflower is very tall, strong and has many flowers, but it's really too dark, not cheerful at all. It's lucky that I planted them with Autumn Beauty Mix (bronze, yellow...) so together they look very beautiful.
