The center f the flower is a dark brown, and the petals are a gorgeous goldish color. Many flowers bloom from each plant. This creates almost a little bush of these beautiful, and bright flowers. They can be collected for bouquets and indoor arrangements. They are perfect for this because of the coloring and amount that bloom. It can also help capture the fall feel of sunflowers, which can not correctly be used for small arrangements. This is so perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving flower arrangements.
