What are the pros? Different-sizes, multi-headed
What are the cons? Squirrels loved them too ;-)
Located near Cleveland, about 2 blocks from Lake Erie. SFG raised beds with automatic watering.
Very pretty multi-headed flowers, with varying sized heads on one stalk. Bees LOVED this sunflower! I plant a large portion of my garden for the bees, so we see many of them, but they were obsessed with this sunflower and would be completely covered in pollen - almost like they had been rolling in it. ;-) I didn't get to harvest any heads for dyeing (which is what had intrigued me about the Hopi sunflowers) or for eating because the dumb squirrels would break off the heads as soon as they ripened.
I did manage to save a few underripe heads for next year's garden, though, so I am looking forward to trying these lovely sunflowers again. Next year I'm going to plant, so maybe the greedy squirrels will leave some for me!
