Chocolate Cherry Sunflower seeds

Okay. I have fallen in love with this sunflower, The seeds were given to me in their packet from a seed pack. It says that it is a pollenless Hybrid. Does this mean I cant save the seeds for next year. Please let me know if It will came true for me. I really enjoyed it this year. Brandy

Hi Brandy,
If you save seed for next year, they won't come true sine the variety is a hybrid. You may get some neat looking plants though. If you want exactly the same, you will need to buy new seed.
Also, since the plants are pollenless, you will need to have a sunflower that produces pollen nearby so you will develop viable seed.
