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 won’t stain furniture when used as a cut flower indoors.

For more information on this new sunflower variety, go to: Thompson & Morgan Seed Company.
