Sunflower Seed

Lemon-yellow blooms.

Sturdy stems with 3-4" blooms. Valentine blooms later than Buttercream by approximately 10 days, making it a good choice for sowing at the same time for succession harvest of light-yellow blooms. Valentine's stems are stronger, and petals are shorter, rounder, and more lemon-yellow in color than Buttercream's very pale blooms. Stem length is 25-45". Day neutral. Bears pollen; good for bee forage. Ht. 55-60". Avg. 1,500 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
