Organic Soraya Sunflower

We love the strong, stout stems of Soraya that easily sport 20-25 flower heads per plant. Each 4-6″ bloom is held on long, sturdy stalks perfect for bouquets. We love to sow Soraya along fences, feeding abundant butterflies (including Monarchs!) and other beneficial pollinators.
