Sunflower Dwarf Elves Blend Organic Seeds

Helianthus annuus

Item #2024

Annual. This may be a blend of shorter varieties, but it's not short on selection. Large and small classic sunflowers, and multi-petaled pom-pom types will brighten your garden, draw pollinators, and make cheery bouquets to embellish your indoor spaces. Branching, drought-tolerant plants will be loaded with sunny yellow blooms from summer to fall. Great in containers or as a short, annual hedge. Fantastic first-time flower for your little elves-oops!-kids to grow!
