I have lots of germinated Sunflower plants but no flowers yet. Our summer started with a drought and water restrictions.

Yes, It's a wonderful show exactly as Botanical Interest's description: "... sunny yellows of 'Lemon Queen', beautiful warm tones of 'Autumn Beauty', and deep reds of 'Velvet Queen'. Multiple branching plants produce a multitude of blossoms for a generous amount of cut flowers." They grow tall and with so many branches and flowers. Very beautiful and long lasting in the vase. Thank you so much for this Autumn Beauty!!
