What are the pros? Beautiful flowers

What are the cons? Smaller flowers, needs support

Review:

I really did enjoy these this year, but was also a tad disappointed at the size of the flower heads. Averaging 10 inches across which is still a great size, just not the 18 inches I was hoping for. I had about 50% germination and the plants maxed out at about 8 to 9 feet tall. They also needed staking and I had several that fell over. I did get a lot of seed to start for next year, and really did think they were a beautiful specimen. They were however very susceptible to borers and of all my varieties I grew this year were the only ones with borer damage. I will grow again for sure, we had some crazy weather so maybe that contributed to the issues I had. Overall still a worthwhile plant, but not superior to the russian mammoth in my experience.

What are the pros? easily grown

What are the cons? Not as large as described

Review:

I started these in peat pots and transferred to a raised garden bed that shared the space with pole beans. The maximum hight I got from these guys was 10 feet, and 10 inch diameter flowers. They did attract a lot of pollinators. We did not need staking and had no problems with pests. We are in the process of harvesting. Zone 5b (canada)

Wondering if I got the right seeds? Mine were just normal, small sunflowers. Maybe an inch or two across.

What are the pros? Pretty flowers, huge leafs

What are the cons? Lots of "blanks" - no kernel

Review:

Our plants reached about 10' tall with seed heads 14" across, and look very much like the picture shown. They probably would have grown taller/bigger in a warmer/sunnier area. The plants were extremely heavy and required staking even though the stalks were huge (about 4" across at the base), with relatively small root ball. The seeds dislodge from the head very easily so start falling out as the head bends over. With that, and many blank shells, we were a little disappointed and want to give it another go next year. Perhaps these don't have desirable pollen so weren't pollinated? These were planted next to a different variety of sunflower which did not have the same problem. Checking "not recommending to a friend" based on all the empty shells ... we specifically grew these for snacking ... but will change the rating if we grow again next year and have different results.

What are the pros? Arrived in a timely manner

What are the cons? Flowers not like described

Review:

Planted 2 packs but only about 50% came up. Plants that did grow had normal sunflowers. Some flowers were pretty nice but none got anywhere near the size described by the company. Got a better display of flowers from 1 pack of Mammoth Sunflower seeds bought from a local store. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!
