Pollen Free Sunflowers

The most popular sunflowers have been bred to be male sterile, or pollen-free to help foster the nice clean appearance of flower heads that the cut flower trade has come to demand. Pollen-free sunflowers are popular with wholesalers, florists, Farmers’ Markets and are great additions to CSA’s. Nothing expresses the essence of summer better than a bunch of bright cheery clean sunflowers!

Single stem varieties are best for high density plantings that will produce tall stems. Branching varieties produce multiple shorter stems over the season, and need more spacing in the field.

Sunflower Tips:  Sow Depth: 1” deep.  Soil Temp.: 50-80°F  Field Spacing: Single Stem 4-6” Branching 12-24”  Harvest:  When petal color is just visible.
