Sunflower Two Queens HEIRLOOM Seeds (LG)

Helianthus annuus

Item #7209


Grow these two 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, but Velvet Queen also provides plenty of pollen for pollinators. This combination of 5"-7" wide, lemon yellow sunflowers and 4"-8" wide dark burgundy red sunflowers looks stunning as a backdrop for the flower or vegetable garden and blooms for months.
