Short, Puffy & Delightful
These short puffy delightful sunflowers just make me smile every time I look at them. The local wildlife loves them too (bees, birds, & the squirrels will make a meal out of the heads). I will often use them to edge my 3-sisters bed.
Easy to grow, delightful border for full sun garden
I first saw this variant or its close relative at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris and fell in love! I was so happy to find this at Seedsavers. The center of the bloom starts as a bright chartreuse that transforms to golden yellow. The bees love it too!
