All the sunflowers we sell at Higgledy Garden have their own distinct character traits..this sunflower…the wonderful ‘Vanilla Ice’ is no exception… I would say it is the the prettiest of the lot…very delicate colour and petal formation… almost translucent. Gorgeous.
As a cut flower it is probably the best of the bunch too. (Excuse the pun) It has dozens of flowers on branching stems…perfect for the vase.
…AND its edible to boot… what is there not to love?
