Sunflower Native American Swamp 100 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Swamp Sunflower or Narrow leaf Sunflower, Helianthus angustifolius, can be found growing in moist, sunny areas from southern New York to Florida and west to the Ohio River valley and south to southern Texas. It can grow in the boggy piney woods of East Texas and in the roadside ditches all the way to the harsh salt environment of the Coastal Salt marshes on the Texas Coast. If planted this spring it will bloom Sept. - Nov. about the same time that the perennial Maximilian Sunflower is blooming. It is easy to tell the two apart. Swamp Sunflower has a dark purplish center and reddish purple stems and skinny willowy leaves while Maximilian Sunflower will have yellow centered flowers and larger leaves. The flowers of Swamp Sunflower are 2 to 3 inches across and are smaller than the other species in the sunflower family. Germination rate about 70% or better.

This is an heirloom seed, meaning it has been passed down from generation to generation for at least 75 years. As a rule, heirloom seeds taste better and will grow the same year after year.
These are also open pollinated meaning they will reproduce themselves. While all heirlooms are open pollinated not all open pollinated seeds are heirlooms.
Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
Freshly Packed: These seeds are packed for the current growing season and will provide high germination rates next year as well.
