The best sunflower seed mixes for bright gardens
It's hard to look at a sunflower and not feel happy. These iconic flowers symbolize joy, playfulness, and youth, and no garden is complete without their distinctive silhouettes that follow the sun from morning to evening.
But not all sunflowers are seven feet tall with large, yellow-petaled heads. There is a great wealth of diversity within this native North American species!
Plant one (or both!) of our two wildflower mixes and find out just how varied sunflower species are. Sunflowers range in size from the two-foot-tall Dwarf Sunspot to the twelve-foot-tall Mammoth-Grey Stripe. Some sunflowers are even perennial varieties, like the branching Maximilian. Enjoy all these varieties and more in Eden Brothers' exclusive sunflower seed mix, Sunny.
Here Comes The Sun, another Eden Brothers' exclusive sunflower seed mix, contains a blend of our customers' favorite annual sunflower varieties ranging in color from pale yellow to deep ruby. From the fluffy yellow Dwarf Sungold to the almost chocolate-colored Velvet Queen, the sunflowers in this mix are gorgeous standing alone or bunched together in a bouquet.
Sunflowers seed mixes are easy to grow
The hardy sunflowers in either mix will thrive in nearly any hardiness zone, in even the poorest of soils, so long as they are able to receive full sun. Sunflowers aren't fussy flowersâ€“these low-maintenance plants prefer to be direct-seeded in the garden after all danger of frost has passed. Bury sunflower seeds about an inch deep to deter birds and other animals from eating the seeds.
Plant sunflowers in rows or in groups for dramatic effectâ€“or better yet, plant a field of sunflowers! Our sunflower seed mixes are designed for planting en massâ€“use the coverage tab at the bottom of the product page to determine how much seed you need to cover an area.
