Venado Germplasm Awnless Bush Sunflower

Venado Germplasm Awnless Bush Sunflower


The Venado Germplasm awnless bush sunflower was originally collected in Medina, Bee, Webb, and La Salle counties. The bright yellow flowers attract pollinating insects. It is sometimes consumed by wildlife such as white-tailed deer, and its bright yellow hue adds color to landscaping.

Beneficial insects are attracted to the flower, and white-tailed deer sometimes consume the leaves. Potential landscaping uses.
