Description

Grow these two royally gorgeous sunflowers for their beauty in the garden, for loads of cut flowers, and to provide support for local bees. ‘Lemon Queen’ is a well-known pollinator-friendly variety, and ‘Velvet Queen’ also provides plenty of pollen; both are drought tolerant, too. This combination of 4″–8″ wide, lemon yellow and dark burgundy sunflowers looks stunning as a backdrop for the flower or vegetable garden and the multi-branching stems bloom for months. Sunflowers are edible, with a bittersweet flavor. The petals add a pretty pop of color ion salads and desserts. The young, sunflower buds are edible, with a flavor similar to artichoke hearts. They can be grilled, marinated, or sauteed for an unusual appetizer or side dish.

Variety Information: ‘Lemon Queen’ has 5″–7″ blooms with lemon-yellow petals and a brown center; ‘Velvet Queen’ has 4″-8″ flowers with dark burgundy petals and a black center.
