Harvested from the gardens at Monticello.
This self-seeding, North American annual wildflower bears abundant bright yellow flowers from late summer into early autumn. Tickseed Sunflower is named for the appearance of its dark brown, flattened seeds. The robust, bushy plants boast delicate, deeply-dissected foliage on multi-branched slender stems. The daisy-like 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 into moist well draining soil after the last frost. Approximately 50-60 seeds per packet.
