This mammoth Grey Striped Sunflower produces nutritious white and grey striped seeds. The massive bright yellow blooms have feathery petals and large chocolate brown centers full of seeds. Thin-shelled, striped seeds are plump and meaty with high oil content. Plants grow 6-12' tall and produce flowers that range from 10-12″ across.
Sunflower seeds can be planted directly into the garden soil.

Sunflower seeds are edible.
Eat the seeds raw, or season and roast for added flavor. There are countless benefits to adding them to your bread recipes, salads, and sandwiches. Sunflowers are known for their delicious seeds and perhaps the lesser-known fact is you can eat the entire sunflower; stalk, leaves, petals, and seeds.
