Sunflower, Ms. Mars, , large

I love s
unflowers. And the variety known as Ms. Mars (Helianthus annuus 'Ms Mars') has crazy merlot-colored petals that radiate out to form an eye-popping flower. The ray petals slowly turn from a purple to a pretty pink. It is a dwarf variety, growing only 20"-30" high, with a strongly branching habit.

Full sun. Easy to Grow.  Dark Purple buds.  Great for kids' gardens and anywhere. Plus, Ms Mars makes a stunning cut flower.  You can use petals and seeds in salads and cakes.And not only are the flowers permeated with a dark reddish purple hue but the leaves and stems are also tinged with this inky color.  

Add this sun loving, happy flower to any garden - guaranteed to make you smile.
