New Lime Green Sunflower
by Charlie Nardozzi
Sunflowers are the quintessential summer flower. Over the past 20 years great strides have been made in breeding sunflowers to create shorter, multi-branching plants and more colorful flower heads. The latest in these breeding achievements is a sunflower with a green center.
Green Heart Hybrid sunflower is a 5-foot-tall, multi-branched plant with 4- to 6-inch-diameter flowers that have golden yellow petals and large, lime green centers. The flowers are pollen-free, so they wont stain furniture when used as a cut flower indoors.
