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.
Growers: 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
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.
