Sunflower Goldy Honey Bear Organic Seeds

Helianthus annuus

Item #2016

Annual. Goldilocks would have to don sunglasses if she ran across these flowers in the bear’s garden! Larger-flowered than Teddy Bear, the Goldy Honey Bear has thick, sturdy stalks that stay upright without staking. Green centers are revealed as the 5" - 10" 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.
