Annual. Helianthus annuus. The plant produces heavy amounts of sunflower seeds. The yellow flowers are enormous and yield a whopper crop of seeds! When the backs turn yellow, cut the flower, and let dry upside down. At the end of the season, watch for goldfinches, who love the seed! The seeds have high oil content making it great for roasting. Easy for kids to grow. Great for school projects.
