      Comments about American Meadows Sunflower Seeds Organic Velvet Queen - 1/4 LB:

      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.
