Giant Grey Mammoth Sunflower
10 foot tall giant plants produce huge flowers and are great
for sunflower seeds....
One of three common varieties grown and used by the Hopi Tribe of
the American Southwest who developed a unique style of dry-land farming
that enabled crops to be grown in an arid climate that averages only
9” of rain a year. Also known as Sacred Tobacco, Hopi Tobacco is used when
planting and gathering food, for healing, and for ceremonies. Annual plants
grow in a rosette habit with large tender leaves and can reach up to
4’ when flowering. Many green-yellow trumpet shaped flowers attract
pollinators and other beneficial insects. A very unique and interesting
ornamental addition. We obtained our original stock seed from a
traveler as a trade for homemade bread back in 1999.
