What are the pros? Beautiful

What are the cons? Slow to flower

Review:

I have a wall of orangey red flowers on a bright green background. After a slow start, I planted in May and had no flowers until very late July, the flowers keep coming as the other flowers mature and fade. The flowers are about 6 feet tall now, at the end of September.

What are the pros? Very bountiful & beautiful!

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are truly beautiful flowers! I can so many compliments on them. Sunflowers are my favorite flower to grow, and this was the first year that I planted this variety. These produce vibrant poppy-colored flowers for weeks, and the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds love them. Plants do excellent in average soil. I will be growing these every year!

What are the pros? Loved by bees and butterflies

What are the cons? None

Review:

I bought these on a whim and am so glad I did! I live in zone 5A and direct sowed these on May 1st. About a 7-10 days later, these boys were popping up in spades. I had no idea they would grow to be so freaking huge- I thought they were like conventional sunflowers- tall and skinny. But, no. A single plant is easily 3 to 4 feet in diameter and 10 feet tall- with dozen and dozens of bright red flowers all over them. They bloom continuously from July to frost (unlike conventional sunflowers that are usually one and done), and basically every pollinator in my area is obsessed with them. Fat carpenter bees, mason bees, all kinds of butterflies, even hummingbirds fought major battles over these plants. They had no pest and no problems.

Review:

These came up really well last summer and grew to over eight feet! The butterflies and hummingbirds dipped in and out of them all summer long. I just deadheaded the spent flowers, and they keep coming on. They also do well as cut flowers in bouquets, I will be planting these, again, this year!

What are the pros? low maint, brilliant blooms

What are the cons? more blooms

Review:

I can't believe how tall and large these plants get...9 feet tall! One of the most beautiful blooms I have ever seen. I wish the plant produced more blooms per plant but otherwise this is a wonderful annual. Couple with my giant zinnias at 8 feet tall and I have a wall of color protecting my house and front yard.
