Welcome to the most exciting Sunflower blend we have ever offered! Monet’s Palette Mix is a premium designer mix of pollen-free, multi-flowered, well-branched varieties in all the latest colors and looks. These aren’t the single-stem smiling faces you have grown up with — they are a whole new world of color, form, and size!
This is a mix for the cut-flower lover. It includes only pollen-free varieties, so you have no messy “drop” around the vase, and even those with pollen allergies can enjoy the blooms up close all summer long. If you haven’t tried pollen-free sunflowers yet, you don’t know what you’re missing — they offer all of the beauty with none of the mess!
The second criteria for this mix is multi-flowered habit. Unlike the giant solitary stalk with one flower sitting at the top, these varieties offer good branching and many, many blooms. You won’t get a massize 12-inch-diameter bloom, but you will get many quite large flowers and a much wider range of colors and looks, not to mention MANY more blooms! And these plants will not need support, holding up their flowers nicely to the sun.
Third, we have chosen the rare and hard to find for Monet’s Palette Mix. You will find double-flowered varieties here — and they are breathtaking! — as well as bicolors and unusual colors like red and burnt orange. No flower is “ordinary” in Monet’s Palette!
The sizes vary greatly for these plants, but usually are within 3 to 6 feet tall and 2 to 4 feet wide. Part of the fun of this mix is planting all 50 seeds and then seeing what comes up! We recommend not double-sowing or thinning — you won’t want to miss a single variety in Monet’s Palette Mix. (If you can, send us a photo when the plants are in bloom. We want to see the range you get too!)
Sunflowers are the kings of the natural sunny summer garden, attracting butterflies and birds. They’re wonderfully easy to grow — just direct-sow the large seeds after all danger of frost. Not picky about soil type, they need direct sun and will turn their flowers to face the sun, so that a mass planting will show all blooms “looking” one way! Space the seeds about 3 feet apart.
