Description

Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
This showy, self-seeding, North American annual wildflower bears abundant bright yellow, daisy-like flowers on slender stalks from late summer into early autumn.  Tickseed Sunflower is so named for the appearance of its dark brown, flattened seeds.  The robust, bushy plants boast delicate, deeply-dissected foliage on green or reddish, multi-branched stems.  The flowers are attractive to butterflies, bees, and other pollinators.

Direct sow seeds outdoors in late fall.  Alternatively, sow seeds indoors in early spring after 60 days of cold, moist stratification; once they have several true leaves, transplant to 3" pots then harden off and plant outdoors after the last frost.  Approximately 50-60 seeds per packet.
