Sunflower

The sunflower was once an emblem of the Sun God of the Incas. This well-loved genus is 150 species strong and includes not only sprightly garden plants but commercially important food and oil crops.

Our easy-to-grow selections tolerate a wide range of garden soils, attract bees, and make great cut flowers.
