Tceqa' Qu' Si (Hopi Black Dye Sunflower)


(Helianthus annuus)

Known as Tceqa' Qu' Si in Hopi, Hopi Black Dye sunflower is queen. QUEEN! We like a sunflower that is tall (7-11 ft ✔️), has large delicious seeds (✔️), and is gorgeous in arrangements (✔️). In addition to these traits, this sunflower is an absolute joy to dye with. The dye pot smells like a sweet and earthy sun-drenched summer day, which is EXACTLY what we need from a dye pot during the last days of winter. The colors you can obtain from the seed hulls range from a gentle warm lavender to a cool black velvet. I'd recommend snacking on the seeds through autumn while saving the hulls for winter dyeing.
