T&M's plant breeders are pleased to announce that Sunflower Bicentenary has been selected by the Royal Horticultural Society and included in their prized Bicentenary Plant Collection celebrating 200 years of the RHS.
Bicententary was chosen because of its outstanding garden performance ,as well as being totally unique! Not only are the attractive 15cm (6 inch) rich gold and bronze flowers bi-coloured, but they also sit above unusual soft, silver-green foliage.
Bicentenary is easy to grow, producing many multi-headed stems which create maximum impact when planted towards the middle or back of a border as well as making a decorative cut flower. The buds are delicious cooked in butter sauce and seeds make a tasty snack. Click here for more information on cooking and decorating food with flowers.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.
Companion planting: Try growing sunflowers with chives to deter aphids.
