Sunflower Earthwalker (Helianthus Annuus) - So easy to grow from flower seeds, the Earthwalker mix provides wonderfully warm tones for the summer garden - reds, oranges, and mahogany and all with a rich brown center. These flowers have a long bloom season, going non-stop from early July through first frost. The tall Sunflowers make a good background in the flower garden or border along the vegetable garden. They are certain to attract many beneficial insects, and you'll have lots of busy buzzing coming from this mix. Start the Sunflower seeds directly outdoors once frost danger has passed. Once the flower seeds are planted, you can expect blooms in 10 to 12 weeks.
