Harris Seeds offers the largest selection of sunflower varieties suitable for cut flower production and sales. They come in a range of heights, colors and flower forms (including some very unusual and unique forms!); many pollenless types; branching or single-stemmed types; and day-length neutral types.

With more diversity in the “look” of sunflowers, the need for a clear distinction in your marketing approach to the consumer becomes apparent. Maximize your sunflower sales by selling them with a seasonal flair. Consider grouping your sunflowers using the following seasonal color schemes:
The ‘Spring Look' - Pastel or light shaded petals ranging from white to peach to pastel yellow, all with light colored disks. The ‘Summer Look’ - Warm brown disks with brightly colored yellow or gold petals. THE ‘Fall Look’ - Color combinations in warm shades of burgundy to maroon, or combinations of golden orange and red, all with very dark brown centers.

The Harris Seeds company began its catalog operation in 1879. It evolved from the efforts of Joseph Harris who became extremely successful in the selection of superior strains of vegetables and grains. The company became wildly popular because of his basic business philosophy - "Offer my customers a quality product at a fair price and they will return."
