Tayio is a Japanese heirloom variety of sunflower and the classic milliner's selection of the 1950s. Refined size and proportion makes this a good choice for a small or formal garden.

A favorite old Japanese heirloom variety. Plants grow 5-6' tall with large 10-12" heads and short golden-yellow petals. Huge centers are covered with chocolate-colored velvet quite similar to fur. One of our favorites.
