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 crysanthemum types will brighten your garden, and make cheery bouquets to embellish your indoor spaces. Branching 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!
