A unique addition to your flower bed, these bright yellow puffball blossoms will give you a warm, fuzzy feeling! 'Teddy Bear' produces many 3"-5" flowers on a 24"-36" tall, multi-branching plant; beautiful as a short hedge and makes a fabulous cut flower. 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 sauteed for an unusual appetizer or side dish. Great for kids to grow due to the large seed and fast growth. Drought-tolerant once established, and attracts pollinators. Non-fussy plant blooms until fall.

Love the packaging of these seeds! We used them as decor for our wedding. Excited to plant them now that it is getting warmer.

These were REALLY dwarf, but that might be my fault, I transplanted them probably too late and they got stunted. The seeds all germinated well and every seedling eventually flowered but they were only about a foot tall, which is fine. They were susceptible to some fungal disease that ended them pretty soon but the flowers were nice when they lasted.

LOVED these!!

i grew these in fabric pots in zone 6 this year for the first time, and absolutely loved them! i followed the sowing directions, and of the nine seeds i planted, all of them germinated and grew to bloom. each plant produced a few flowers, and they look exactly like the illustrations. when the blooms first appear, they look very similar to your typical sunflower, but each subsequent day, they get more and more teddy bear like! its very neat to watch them fluff up over the week following emergence. the blooms are very photogenic and attract lots of different insects. i had hoped to save some seeds for next year, but they found homes in the stomachs of goldfinches! i would highly recommend this species to everyone, especially those who may be restricted to container gardening due to space, poor soil quality, or renting. will definitely be purchasing more and some to share in the spring.

This is the first time that I decided to grow sunflowers in containers knowing many of the varieties can grow very big. I am very satisfied and happy with the quality of plants and beautiful blooms. Highly recommended for sunflower lovers with limited space to grow!

Love them

I had no problem with germination. I live in zone 6. I started them indoors the end of April. Transplanted them mid May and they bloomed by the end of June. They were beautiful. Each plant was loaded with numerous flowers of varying sizes. My husband enjoyed how compact the plant is versus the typical tall, long branched sunflowers that take up a lot of space. They were a conversation starter in the neighborhood and a highlight of my garden. I'll be planting them again next year.
