      Comments about American Meadows Organic Sunflower Seeds Velvet Queen:

      I loved these sunflowers. They were easy to plant and bloomed beautifully. There was an abundance of flowers, so I was able to cut plenty for my home and also leave plenty to decorate the outdoors. The only drawback is that they are an annual.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
