Sunnyside sunflower seeds are used to cultivate a quick culture: Kenny Be's Hip Tip

Traditionally, several Native American groups planted sunflowers on the north side of their gardens as a "fourth sister" to complement the better known three sisters combination of corn, beans, and squash. Denver gardeners can cultivate a quick history and pay tribute to a north-side Denver neighborhood by planting Sunnyside sunflower seed... Much like the residents of the north-side neighborhood, Sunnyside sunflowers are known for their huge heads. Even with their rough, hairy stems and course leaves, Sunnyside sunflowers demand attention. Proven outstanding in their field, these fast-growing flowers are ideal for competition at the Denver County Fair.

As illustrated above, the amazing giant heirloom is fast and easy to grow -- especially in up-and-coming areas. When grown together, they gentrify into an enchanted natural play area for children and pets. The enormous blooms yield loads of meaty real estate and are ringed by bright flowery shops. They are best sown in average soil after danger of frost.
