Sunflower Seeds – Wild Sunflower
Wild Sunflower Seeds. This native sunflower is a must for any true wildflower garden! Blooms over a long period of time, with large 4″ flowers in bright yellow with dark centers. Height varies widely, from 36 – 72″ tall. These wild sunflowers are super easy to grow from seed, and attract hummingbirds and butterflies to the garden. These can take drought, heat, and neglect, and still look pretty stunning! These are NOT your typical garden sunflower varieties (the enormous ones with seed-filled centers), these are the original native wild sunflowers (smaller flowers with smaller centers). Perfect for meadows, pastures, roadsides, or any other un-mowed area. Great cut flower, and are deer-resistant too.
