Sunflower Zohar Hybrid
Out of stock
Bright as the sunrise, 4″–6″ golden-yellow flowers on tall, sturdy stems are the backyard florist’s dream come true. The Hebrew word, zohar, translates to “speldor” or “radiance”, and this sunflower has both! ‘Zohar’ blooms just 2 months from sowing, and has an extra-long vase life (up to 12 days). With one flower per plant, sow every 2 to 4 weeks for continuous summer bloom and endless bouquets. Sunflowers are edible, with a bittersweet flavor. The petals add a pretty pop of color ion salads and desserts. The young, sunflower buds are edible, with a flavor similar to artichoke hearts. They can be grilled, marinated, or sauteed for an unusual appetizer or side dish. Drought tolerant. Although pollenless, they do produce nectar for pollinators.
