Sunflower Surprise

Beautiful surprises happen when plants and pollinators are left to their own devices. Hudson Valley Seed Company's sunflower mix has its origins in a wet summer, when the bags protecting the heads of their sunflowers from cross-pollination melted off in a heavy rain. Tall and short, orange, yellow, maroon, striped, singles, and multiples all crossed creating a new cacophony of sunny blooms. This mix is a riff on the same idea, featuring a range of colors and heights that will provide sunny blooms all season long.

All the sunflowers in this mix are tall, but heights do vary, giving it a slightly wild and fun appearance when sown in blocks.

Contains Lemon Queen, Velvet Queen, Autumn Beauty, Skyscraper, and Sungold Dwarf sunflowers.
