Sun-Fill™ Purple

(F1) Sunflower Seed

Product ID: 3396

New! Novel purple sunflower.

Fast-growing sunflowers produce sturdy, 3-4" geometric flower heads for use as bouquet greenery. Petals are green at the center, fading to purple. Often, sunflower backs can be just as beautiful and interesting as the faces. To bring the "sunflower back" look to the forefront, American sunflower breeder Tom Heaton bred two innovative varieties (Sun-Fill Green and Sun-Fill Purple) with highly ornamental sepals that wrap the flower face, creating that look typically only found on the back of the flower. Sunflower heads produce very small and few petals, allowing for the calyx to cover the face of the bloom at harvest. The small petals are hidden under the calyx and only appear once the flowers are overmature. Pollenless. Single stem. Ht. 60-72". Avg. 8,500 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
