Arikara Sunflower

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

The beautiful Arikara sunflower was once grown by the Arikara Indians and was originally collected by Melvin Gilmore. The plants can grow to 10’ high and the flowers are single headed as well as multi headed. Sunflowers were traditionally one of the first things planted in the spring by the natives and one of the last harvested. Sunflower seeds were parched in a clay pot and then pounded in a corn mortar to make sunflower meal. The meal was then made into sunflower seed balls that warriors carried wrapped in buffalo heart skin. The sunflower seed balls were eaten as a sort of energy food when they would feel tired or weak. Annual.

30 seeds per packet.
