This unusual novelty variety was discontinued years ago, and we’re thrilled to finally bring it back. Plants are tall, with outward-facing blooms and a vigorous branching habit ideally suited for flower arranging. Flowers have tubular quilled petals and dark chocolate centers in a mix of pale lemon yellow dusted with cocoa and raspberry—coloring similar to that of ‘Sahara’ black-eyed Susans. Plants make great screening and attract birds.

How to Grow:
Sunflowers can be direct seeded into the garden or started in trays and then transplanted out after 2-3 weeks.
