Days to Maturity: 80
Giant Purple Seeded Sunflowers are gigantic, towering to over 8-10+ feet! Huge flower heads produce abundant sunflower seeds perfect for snacking, adding to animal feed and delighting the birds. Seeds can be pressed to make sunflower oil. These giant sunflower heirlooms are so easy and impressive to grow. Kids (and the young at heart) love playing in a forest of them.
Planting Instructions: Plant Giant Purple Seeded Sunflower seeds directly in the ground 6-12" apart after last frost. Do not overwater.
Seed Saving Instructions: Flowers will dry and start drooping. Then seeds will start to dry out. Cut whole flower heads and remove seeds so they can fully dry. We like to use a rubber glove to dislodge the seeds from the flowerhead. Store seeds in a paper or mesh bag in a cool, dark and dry location.
