Heirloom Flower - Poppy 'Mary's Ukrainian'

Mary's Ukrainian


(Papaver somniferum)

Another wonderful heirloom from my great grandparents. Mary Stefanec was my great grandmother so I named these poppies after her. These poppy’s have been growing on our farm for generations and self seed every year. A delightful mix of different colored single poppies mostly in the purple to red color ranges; all with a darker blotch in the center. Some even have fringed petals. The leaves and stems are glaucous and a bluish green in color. The seed heads are usually quite large and the seed is dark gray to black. Although I never have used the seeds in pastries or baking, I would imagine that my great grandmother once did.

Heirloom Sunflower

Heirloom Flower - Sunflower 'Arikara'

Arikara


(Helianthus annuus)

This beautiful 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.
