The deep velvet luster of this sunflower is fit for a queen. Its maroon flower heads nod, turn, and royally wave from their high thrones as they follow the sun's arc across the summer sky. Dress up your sunflowers by growing flowering vines like pole beans and morning glories up the stalks. Your queen might just say, "We are amused."
