Helianthus annuus

This one is for the birds! Leave the flower heads on and you will have many happy feathered friends. This sunflower is a quick and easy grower. With a seed that is softer than other gray-striped varieties and a high protein content, it is a good fuel for songbirds. It is also a good choice to make sunflower oil.

If planting directly outside, cover the area with netting or landscape cloth until they sprout. Birds love to dig them up for a snack!

Stagger plantings over the course of several weeks for continuous blooms.
