Sunflower Drop Dead Red Seeds (LG)

Helianthus annuus (hybrid)

Item #7204

LARGE PACKET

Annual. Drop Dead Red is “drop dead gorgeous”! This is a fabulous mix of large (4" - 5"), long lasting, florist quality flowers in shades of red from deep burgundy velvet, to steamy valentine red, to autumnal pumpkin/orange-red, some in bicolors. Sunflowers are so easy to grow from seed and provide color from midsummer to fall. These tall plants are ideal for the back of the garden, or as a border. Plant only 6" apart to produce shorter, bushier plants with smaller blooms. As a pollenless hybrid, there’ll be no more messy pollen drop from your gorgeous cut flower arrangements!
