Giant Sunflower Varieties?
« on: January 10, 2011, 22:05:44 »
This may have already been covered (sorry for being lazy)

I recently saw some giant sunflowers on line but the bloom was more like a giant French marigold.  Does anyone know of such varieties?

Thanks in anticipation

Have finally found it. ......Helianthus Sungold

sunflower with brilliant golden yellow double blooms. head like a marigold, filled with fluffy petals but much larger and perched on a plant that can reach 2m tall.

 Here is the link

My neighbour grew sunflowers like this last year and they were magnificent.

moreveg is quite an interesting seed seller, will look at them for my next seed order.
