What are the pros? tall, gorgeous colors
What are the cons? needs staking
Germination rates were over 90% with this sunflower. I sprouted these in mid-march and planted into the garden in a raised flower bed in April.
Our spring was warm, humid, and overcast with only 2-3 weeks of sun up until July. But that didn't stop these from flowering
in June or growing like crazy to 12 feet! Plants fell over after a very wet two weeks that was finished off by some strong winds. I was too lazy to stake them and just decided
to let them keep growing. They simply curved and grew back upwards with half of the trunk laying down.
Multiple blooms over a long period. These grow one main huge flower with a bunch of smaller side flowers that flower over a long
season. It's been 3 weeks and the blooms are still coming. Butterflies and bees LOVE them. I grew these for the wildlife and for visual
pleasure, and they earned 5 stars. If you want to help the bees, plant this variety. The flowers are LOADED with pollen that bees eat for their protein.
