If you want to grow sunflowers AND feed the bees, this is the seed for you. Many of the new varieties were developed for the cut flower market to not produce pollen as it is messy in a bouquet. Not these! 'The Birds and the Bees' is filled with abundant pollen and nectar to feed our pollinators AND to produce sunflower seeds in the fall. 6-8' tall, yellow sunflowers with a darker center ring. Our most popular sunflower variety and for good reason. Sunflowers are warm season plants. Direct sow in late May or early June.
