What are the pros? A self-sowing plant
What are the cons? plants sprout in the lawn
I originally planted several sunlower varieties inluding Titan almost 7 years ago...The display was beautiful and even caused a few drivers to just stop in the middle of the road and stare.
My largest Titan head was defintely 24" and atop a 14' stalk...it took a handheld tree pruner for me to harvets the heads and cut down the tree-like stalks. My yard is filled with birds and rusty-patch bumble bees. I wish I could share photos. The plants are easy to grow; I grow transplants and sink the hairy stems deep like my tomato plants...they grow tall thick stalks. This year I will plant them as a thick, privacy fence around my yard. tall plants in back and 2 foot plants around my front yard.
