composite plants, daisy family Helianthus annuus

Velvet queen Sunflower

These mysterious, dark flowers draw in curiosity of onlookers. Each individual flower of this variety is a unique jewel. The petals vary from deep, dark purple to a bristling bronze and bright yellow. In the almost black centre, a light yellow pollen glimmers like stardust. This sunflower plant branches as it grows 2.5 m high with a strong base.

Sow in early May directly into rows 40 cm apart. Keep moist and tie to stakes if necessary.
