These can be used for both garden decoration and seed. Some are better suited for one purpose than the other. We struggle to compete with the birds for the seeds. Large patches tend to give us very small seed return as the birds get most of them prior to the heads being totally mature.
Lemonhead- 100 days- I embarked on a sunflower breeding project 15 years ago and prior to our family dog’s arrival, sunflowers were always destroyed by skunks eating the grubs at their roots. I persisted with limited return crossing some wild Polish lemon yellow sunflowers with orange ones and offer this for trial. The flowers are a mix of single and double and are over 95% a bright lemon yellow. Flowers range up to 8” across, plants 8 foot tall. (UNAVAILABLE FOR 2021) We keep losing it to the birds.
