Description / Prairie Wild Sunflower Seeds

The Prairie Sunflower, a perennial cousin to the beloved annual varieties, offers a spectacle of yellow plumes adorned with 3-inch blooms. These magnificent flowers form neat rows along their impressive length, capturing the essence of late summer's charm. For enthusiasts of wild sunflowers, the Prairie Sunflower presents an unmissable opportunity to incorporate perennial vigor into their gardens.

Thriving in sunny spots, the Prairie Sunflower can reach heights of 3 to 8 feet tall, making it a stunning addition to any garden space. It stands out for its trouble-free nature and floriferous display, starting its bloom just as the summer color begins to wane. This wild sunflower variety is a splendid choice for extending the blooming season into the late summer and early fall, ensuring that your garden remains vibrant as the season transitions.

Ideal for creating an impact with cut flowers or adding a mass of color to the back of a border, the Prairie Sunflower is among the most prolific sources of late-season color. Its tall, vigorous growth ensures the garden border remains lush, bridging the gap during the "in-between" season. With its ability to adapt to various soil types and hardiness across Zones 4 to 9 in North America, the wild sunflowers variety, Helianthus annuus, is a must-have for every garden enthusiast looking to grow sunflowers with ease and splendor.

For optimal growth, direct sow Prairie Sunflower seeds in any sunny location. This hardy variety is not particular about soil conditions, making it a versatile choice for gardeners across North America. Whether planted against an outdoor structure or used to enhance the perennial border, the Prairie Sunflower, with its Helianthus annuus lineage, is a testament to the enduring beauty and resilience of common sunflowers.

Beautiful every year
Review by Uncle Rippy
I have had these sun flowers from seed I bought from you growing for over 25 years. They are consistently the most trouble free and beautiful, with a large showing of flowers, variety I have ever had. They are very easy to relocate in their dormant stage (Dec.-Feb.) and can be shared with friends and family.
Off and running first year.
Review by Brian
Put these in quite late but by mid August they're 4 feet tall and have multiple blooms on each plant. Put them on the slope of a drainage ditch in clay soil and they seem to love it. Can't wait until they spread next year.
Be Patient
Review by Steve B
Planted last year. Good growth-no flowers. Cut down in Fall. This year 6' tall and 5-6 flowers per branch starting in mid July. Looks great!
Review by Linda A
I LOVED them (at first)! They do grow very tall & showy, but quickly spread by seeds and roots. Very difficult to keep in control. If you do grow them, they will branch more fully if you pinch the tops off at about 6 inches - and again as they grow.
