Sunflowers for Ukraine

Welcome to Firefly Farm & Mercantile. We are a small family business near La Crosse, WI. We specialize in open-pollinated seeds and have close to 1,000 options at any given time. We love bulbs and that is our first passion. So no matter the season we have garden bulbs for you. We ship all over the US and to many countries throughout the world.

Just like many of you, we wanted a way to help the people impacted by the war going on in Ukraine. Sunflowers are the national flower for Ukraine and we will be donating $1 for every seed packet to causes that support the refugees.

We will do this for all of 2022, starting with our first donation April 1st and will continue to do that each month.

Sunflowers are very easy to grow and we carry an assortment that is knee high all the way to over 12 feet. You really cannot go wrong, the only major need they have is full sun. Sunflowers lover the sun!
