The flowers are said to be edible, the buds tasting like artichokes, while the petals have a bittersweet flavour. Flowers late June-September.
Easy to grow, sunflowers have always been a real favourite with younger gardeners. Producing flowers like very large daisies with brightly coloured petals, they make a striking addition to any garden.
