Fantasia Mixture Sunflower

5 reviews

Five-foot tall single stem and branching plants with five-inch pollen-less blooms, what could be better? Our mixture has the widest possible color range, goes from white, lemon, and yellow all the way to a very dark red including many bi-colors in between. Pollen-free sunflowers were produced as this quality meant even allergic people could have a bouquet of sunflowers on their table, another plus is no unsightly pollen dropping onto the table. These flowers will still produce seeds if pollinated by a pollen-carrying bee or insect. Sunflowers attract bees, birds, and butterflies.

Hit and miss germination this year

My early plantings did not all germinate well (indoors, grow mats for heat, and grow lamps). The echinacea was 1 plant out of all the seeds and I got nothing from the bee balm seeds. The others were good (basil, onions, and squash were all very good germinators).

Sunflower fantasies mix

I only planted four or five seeds as I had ordered them fairly late in th season. Three plants sprouted and grew. They began blooming a couple of weeks ago .The flowers are beautiful . The deer discovered them last week and unfortunately they topped them all. I'm hoping for regrowth this season. I will definitely plant them again next year behind a taller barrier.

Another fantastic mix

We have paired this with Monet's Pallete and made an artist's as well as a bee's paradise for a very reasonable price.
