A sunny mix of sunflowers in varying heights and hues.
Beautiful surprises happen when plants and pollinators are left to their own devices. Our sunflower mix has its origins in a wet summer, when the bags protecting the heads of our 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.

Direct sow after frost in clumps. Good soil will yield magnificent plants, but 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.
