A Hopi heirloom prized for its purple-black seeds, used especially for coloring baskets.
High Mowing Organic Seeds - High Mowing sold this variety in our very first catalog, and we're bringing it back in part to complete the circle of our journey, and in part, because it's a great variety. Like us, it's scrappy and resilient and does a lot with a little, where the seeds are good for dye but also for food or feed, and are the best for de-hulling. The massive tall flowers are classically sunflower beautiful, with yellow rays around purple-black centers. Grown for countless generations, this variety will almost certainly still be used to make dye a hundred years from now. Approx. 500 seeds/oz.
Instructions - Sow seeds outdoors after the last frost. Sunflowers prefer full sun to light shade and well-drained rich soil. Provide support for tall plants.
