Featured Native Species – Sunflowers!

Today’s Native Species Spotlight is the Sunflower! Native to the eastern United States and Central America, these highly recognizable annuals come in a range of hues, including yellow, orange, and reddish brown. Sunflowers range in size from the smaller potted varieties pictured below to absolutely massive cultivars that reach well over 6 feet tall. Sunflowers are believed to be one of the first crops domesticated by Native Americans, and they have since spread across the world due to their enigmatic appearance, protein-rich seeds, and mildly flavored oil.
We just received a shipment of sunflowers that are ready to burst, and our storefront also features many sunflower-centered decorations for your home and garden. Stop in soon and support native plants!
