Organic Non-GMO Open-Pollinated Grey Striped Mammoth Sunflower Seeds

This annual plant, native to the Americas, is one of the largest among the sunflower family. Growing from 8’–12’ in height and boasting flower heads that can have a diameter over 2’!

These gorgeous flowers are recognized for providing bright accents in a garden while also offering a generous amount of delicious large seeds.

The sunflower seeds can be eaten raw, in a sauce, tossed in a salad, roasted or even made into butter or oil. Naturally, they attract wildlife and provide food for birds in the fall. Bees love sunflowers and will pollinate them to provide a bumper crop of seeds.

The height of this flower makes it ideal as a privacy screen or a tall hedge. The young shoots of the flowers are even edible as sprouts or as a garnish. Unopened buds may be steamed like artichokes. These sunflowers are ideal for pressing your own oil, as the seeds have high oil content.

The center of the sunflower contains nectar and pollen which is a source of food for bees.
