What are the pros? Plentiful blooms. Good height
What are the cons? All gold blooms so far.
I'm in Texas zone 8b. I planted these late, in late June. They were direct sown and watered 3 times a day until they came up. I got about 75% germination and plants were strong and healthy and bloomed in early September. They were spaced about 18-20 inches and the tallest plants got to a little over 7 feet. They survived an armyworm invasion with the help of handpicking and BT dust. They make beautiful 4 - 6 inch blooms all up and down the plant but they get a bit droopy at the top due to weight of all those blooms so I helped them by staking them up a little. My only disappointment is that I didn't get any color variation. They were all gold like a traditional sunflower. Only one plant had the tiniest hint of red near center. I was really hoping for some variation like shown in the pictures. Maybe the ones that didn't germinate were the red and orange ones. I have about ten of them planted and so far 7 of them are gold.
