Sunflower - Bronze & Yellow mix - 167MT102A

Sunflower - Bronze & Yellow mix - 167MT102A

Details  Minette saved seed from Moulin Rouge for a few years (Moulin Rouge is F1), so it's offspring reverted to something different to the parent - more yellow with bronze shading. Comes out different each year. She also sowed amongst them at some point bronze selection of sunflowers, and let nature do its thing. So now she has seeds which she just sows each year and gets something else every time... a mix of bronze, yellow-bronze, and yellow. Heads are not massive, but the plants can get really tall (like at least 2-2.3m). Mostly the plants produce more than one flower head, but the side flowers are always smaller than the main head. Loved by bees and bumblebees.
