What are the pros? Beautiful & tall
What are the cons? Dogs kept wanting to knaw it
After waiting a year or two (the seeds still survived) I planted 3 outside by the dog fence last year 2018. Every seed grew! 1 accidently got trampled, and the 2nd one got hit by wind pretty bad right when it was starting to grow flowers and it died since it snapped in half. But the 3rd one woot. That baby survived a few storms and serious heat strikes and grew to 8 feet! A couple flowers were the size of my opened hand. It had several beautiful flowers and kept going till late august.
Only issue I had was that my dogs kept wanting to knaw on the small leafs lol.
When growing a tall variety of sunflowers it is best to have them cloistered together, or against a fence, tree, or trellis of some form. Even letting them grow next to corn. And to make sure that it has some form of windbreaker so it doesn't get knocked over in a storm.
I will try again this year 2019. Would love to see what types of seeds it'll have and how they will do next to the corn.Thanks again! Beautiful flowers!
