Review:

I planted a row of these in April, before the last frost, on the east side of a north-south fence. Nearly every seed germinated and shot up quickly. I tried re-planting the few which didn't germinate, but their growth was stunted due to the shade from those planted in April. Heavy June rains and winds caused some to lean, but never topple. I tied those to the fence with twine. By mid-July, By the tallest were 12 feet in height. Disks ranged from 1.5 up to 5 inches in diameter. I documented a number of different pollinators, but mostly long-horned (specialist) bees, green metallic bees, and bumble bees. Few, if any, honey bees. Once the seeds are ripe, yellow finches and squirrels will decimate them all within a matter of days. (Keep this in mind if you plan on saving any seeds.)

What are the pros? Great germination rate.

What are the cons? maybe a little too tall....

Review:

Got these as a freebie with my order and planted them alongside the Autumn Beauty sunflower seeds I purchased. These things grew quite tall, guesstimating about 8 feet when I used my own height for reference. So tall in fact that I staked them all as they were getting quite a lean after a few heavy rains we had (we've had a wet summer, zone 6b). Planted in late May and as of now, late July, all 3 seeds germinated and have produced multiple flowers per plant. Flowers themselves aren't huge which allows them to not droop so much compared to other sunflowers I've seen. Even though I didn't choose them, I'm happy I received them and will most likely plant them again next year (albeit in a different location).

Review:

As previous folks have stated...these are very beautiful and wonderful garden flowers. They are very easy to grow and they grow fast! They were direct sowed against and east facing garage wall in early March of 2014. They have exceeded the garage roof line and have multiple blooms. It is now mid-June and most are developing the seeds for bird consumption later. For the first time, there are Lesser Goldfinches in my yard. They also nibble the leaves by the stem for lining their nests. This has been are real treat!
