Description
This is a popular hybrid mix of colors created from the true grandfather species of them all—the basic annual sunflower that figured so prominently in Native American ritual, fabric making, and foods. Flowers are highly decorative, with small centers and petals that range from pure gold to gold with brown, deep reds, and an unlimited show of color combinations. This is to sunflowers what Gloriosa Daisy is to black-eyed susan. A very popular mix in the cut-flower trade, and a must for your cutting garden.

Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Seeds Autumn Beauty:

I love sunflowers. Planted them in large pots in early june and hoped to be able to use them in a wedding at end of August. NOPE! They grew tall and pretty, but their heads did not come on until the weekend of the wedding and still have not bloomed in September. Soon I think though. I will try again next summer and plant earlier. Beautiful plants!

      Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Seeds Autumn Beauty:

      Another very reliable performer providing it is sown in full-sun and looks best if sown in clumps rather than individual specimens and I also found that groups sort of support each other during torrential rains or winds.

          Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Seeds Autumn Beauty:

          Tossed the seeds at the top of a hill and they came up nicely. Each stalk had multiple blooms. However, almost all blooms were yellow, with a few that had a deep orange ring near the center (not as wide as pictured on site). Still, they were prolific, easy to grow, and made a great display in a vase for late summer/early fall.

                I don't know if it was the seeds or the weird weather in the Southeast this year, but the germination rate was terrible. I only got about 5 plants from this entire bag of seed.

                  Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Seeds Autumn Beauty:

                  I first discovered these amazingly colorful sunflowers when I planted the Midwest Wildflower Mix. I have now shifted from the Mommoth Sunflowers (whose huge heads eventually droop a lot) to this Autumn Sunflower mix. They're colorful, just the right size, don't droop and make excellent cuttings. We get plenty of low cost glass vases at the local drift store, which we fill with these and other cut flowers. They decorate our home and make excellent gifts.

                  I used these sunflowers along the edge of a wildlife plot next to my yard. The were easy to grow, beautiful, and attracted a lot of birds. I only wish the blooms would last longer.
