Monet's Pallet Mix Sunflower

2 reviews

A beautiful mixture of yellows and reds, roses and creams, all pastels, a bouquet does resemble a watercolor painting. Six-foot plants grow vigorously and are covered with blooms for close to a month. The long branches are ideal for cutting and the flowers are pollen free. 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. This flower will still produce seeds if pollinated by a pollen-carrying bee or insect. (F1)

Variety is the spice of life

Love the color mixture. Sometimes seeds come up the following year and give us welcome surprises.
