Russian Mammoth sunflowers are the BIG ones! They grow up to 10 ' tall and 24 " across here in Iowa. Look at the size of the seed head compared to the clothespin, a diameter not uncommon with this variety... we've been growing and selling this special sunflower in our Local Harvest store for many years and it never fails to please.
These amazing sunflowers can be planted singly, as a border OR in a circle or square pattern which will grow into a fun "flower fort" for kids. Plant some flowering vines to climb up them (we also offer nice purple/magenta Morning Glory seeds in our LH store) and you'll have happy birds, butterflies AND children ~ and plenty of seeds to save for next year's garden. The seeds are large and edible.
This year we also offer Autumn Beauty Sunflower seeds, another beautiful heirloom sunflower we love to grow here.
Autumn Beauty sunflowers are also tall plants, but unlike Russian Mammoths they branch out and produce numerous multi-colored flowers on each branch ~ the flowers display shades of red, gold, yellow, orange & maroon, thus their name ~ really pretty and great for cutting, they last well in flower arrangements.
They're lovely to see in the garden, and birds and wildlife enjoy eating the seeds they produce.
Each pack of seeds comes with planting and growing instructions.

DEAR CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS ~ PLEASE NOTE: The Local Harvest "Notify Me" service is working now. It says on each product "We can email you when [Catnip Farm] is back ready to take orders" but for a few months the notifications were being sent out the same day they were requested ~ while items were still out-of-stock. So... in case this happens again, please feel free to e-mail me as a back-up and I'll let you know when I'm able to make certain things again: email@example.com (my store is still mostly "on vacation" but I'm able to check e-mail now). THANK YOU!
Large orders ship Priority Mail with DC. Most orders I can make in 2-10 business days. For toys see my store listing. Please order early for holidays & write to firstname.lastname@example.org if your order is URGENT.
