Velvet Queen Sunflower Seeds, Non-GMO, Open Pollinated
10 Seeds Per Package

Deep velvet luster of this sunflower suggests its lofty station in the royal gardens. Its maroon flower heads nod, turn, and wave regally from their high thrones as they follow the sun's arc across the summer sky. The seeds provide food for migratory birds, oil for cooking, decorations and crafts, plus a snack for hungry folks.

Direct sow after frost. This queen casts shade, so consider smaller plants in the area when planting. Good soil and plenty of water result in the largest plants, but sunflowers are hardy and will do well in less than ideal conditions. To save seeds, cover ripe flower heads with paper bags to keep the birds off.
