Vanilla Ice Sunflower Seeds

Vanilla Ice Sunflower Seeds

SKU: #1136

'Vanilla Ice' brings a creamy, light yellow color to the garden and your tabletop arrangement. Sweet 3"–5" flowers bloom on multi-branched, 5' tall plants that are lovely in a moonlit garden. Sunflowers are practically care-free, very easy to grow, and provide months of color. 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. Drought tolerant once established, and pollinators love them!
