“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” ― Vincent van Gogh

History

The wild sunflower is native to North America but commercialization of the plant took place in Russia. It was only recently that the sunflower plant returned to North America to become a cultivated crop. Sunflower was a common crop among American Indian tribes throughout North America. Evidence suggests that the plant was cultivated by Indians in present-day Arizona and New Mexico about 3000 BC. Some archaeologists suggest that sunflower may have been domesticated before corn.

Uses

Can be grown as an ornamental or used for edible seed or bird food. Ideal for children’s gardens, hedges or privacy screens.

Growing Tip
