    • Thank you! Yeah, I love all the different varieties of sunflowers. There’s one kind that looks like a watercolor brushstroke has been painted lightly across all the petals that’s really lovely too.

    • Hi Katie, these are from a variety of chocolate sunflower – the seeds give off a strong chocolate smell when they’re fresh. I purchased a mix of sunflower seeds from Burpee and these grew from a seed in their “Summer Evening” mix. 🙂 Hope that helps.
