Mongolian Giant sunflower
Helianthus anuus. Enormous seed heads can reach 18” across, becoming so heavy that the tree-like stalks can barely support their weight. A fantastic source of food for birds and people alike, the seeds themselves are over an inch long, and make a nutritious snack roasted and salted. Plants can reach up to 14 feet in the right conditions with ample fertility and a well drained soil. Single stalk variety with some branching off types present. 90 days.
