Sunflower Giant Russian
Give them plenty of room and you will be rewarded with plants up to 3m tall with huge yellow flowers often 30cm in diameter. The buds, petals and seeds are all edible. Add the petals to a green salad for a colour contrast and a mild nutty taste. The green buds can be blanched, then tossed in garlic butter. The kernels inside the seeds can be eaten raw or toasted as a snack. Also very good as chook food! 9cm pot.
