Details

Surprises happen when plants and pollinators are left to their own devices. Our sunflower mix all started when the paper bags protecting the heads of our sunflowers from cross-pollination melted off in a heavy rain. Tall and short, orange, yellow, maroon, singles and multiples, all crossed creating a new cacophony of sunny blooms. This mix is a refinement of the same idea, featuring a range of colors and heights that will provide sunny blooms all season long.

Direct sow after frost in clumps. Good soil will yield magnificent plants, but Sunflower Surprise will grow well in any regular garden soil. (Just go lightly on extra nitrogen, which encourages leafy growth over blooms.) Use blooms from branching plants for cut flowers. Let some go to seed for you and the birds.
