Short Stuff Sunflower

A treat for the kids’ garden; this short, squat variety stands just 2.5 feet tall but produces large heads up to 8 inches wide. This unique variety was selected by Merlyn and Mary Ann Niedens, dedicated, life-long seed savers from Illinois. This bold, very uniform variety looks stunning in borders or in the garden, and the seeds make excellent winter time bird food.

What are the pros? Fun idea

What are the cons? Not as advertised

Review:

I am so disappointed in this variety. I have a south facing front yard that gets lots of sun exposure. I have grown sunflowers before and know what they need to thrive - which really isn’t much. I staked these guys in front of my fence. Protected them from rabbits with little chicken wire cages for about a month after they sprouted. I planted early May. It is now early August and this is what I’ve got. The stalks grew to be less than 12 inches tall - to be more specific, they’re closer to 6 inches tall - and the flowers themselves are about the size of my fist, which is tiny. Was really excited for these but I am just so disappointed.

What are the pros? Large head, small frame

What are the cons? none

Review:

These are my favorite small sunflower. Kids love them because they're about the same height. The first year I grew them, I cut and dried several heads then fed them to my chickens during the winter months. I grow taller sunflowers for wild birds, but short-stuff is a great option for small size and heavy production of seed.

Review:

I ordered these with my container garden in mind and they did marvelously, producing a good many seeds. Mine were only about 3 ft tall and didn't need stakes. I did lose some seedlings transplanting them so would advise people to be careful about that but would recommend them to friends who garden.

Review:

I planted these in the spring and had big gorgeous flowers with seeds by the end of the summer. The flowers were the biggest I have ever seen! I did save some of the seeds but I am reordering so I have more. I liked the fact that they are not very tall and it made them easy to stake because the flower is so heavy they will fall over.
