What are the pros? tons of blooms per plant
What are the cons? bushy, not tall
I planted some of these in the middle of my garden, expecting to be able to use the tall stems as a trellis for my cucumber vines. Nope. Instead I have a massive sunflower bush about 5 feet across and 4 feet tall that's shading my cucumbers into the path. Oh, well. They're very pretty, and the bees LOVE them--there are like 20 blooms per plant right now in mid-August. Keeping my pollinators very happy. I'll grow them again, but not right there.
I'm not sure how they got a handful of sunflowers that all look different--mine are all pale gold with a touch of red toward the center. Maybe each plant is different, and I just got all the same pattern?
