Arikara Sunflower

Helianthus annuus

Big, showy blooms great for producing seed.

A Native American heirloom originally grown by the Arikara tribe. While these sunflowers grow tall, the the flower produce a large seed head, at the younger stage they are simply gorgeous. The slightly wild looking petals and pale centers are right out of a Van Gogh painting. Great along a fence, or to create shade for cool loving crops in the garden.
