‘Lemon Queen.’ The origin of this cultivar is a bit obscure but it probably originated as a natural hybrid somewhere in the Midwest. Often called a “showstopper”, it can grow to 8 feet and tolerates a wide variety of soil conditions. It can with-stand very dry soil

In Native American tribes across North America as early as 2000 BC. the seeds of sunflowers were used for their oil, ground up for meal, or simply eaten as a snack.   The plant also provided dye and medicinal ointment. In 18th century Europe, sunflowers were widely used both in gardens and for making cooking oil
