Sunflower, Short Stuff

80% of 100

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, lifelong seed savers from Illinois. This bold, very uniform variety looks stunning in borders or in the garden, and the seeds make excellent wintertime bird food.
