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!!

I love these. They have tons of flowers. Tall but not overwhelmingly so. Great addition to my farm.

Summer in a flower

I've tried sunflowers in the past without any luck since deer, squirrels or chipmunks eat everything in my yard. I was determined to grow some this year and this is the only one that survived for me! Gorgeous!

I was hoping for more red-orange shades but I guess I accidentally thinned to all the yellow shades coincidentally. But nevertheless I still got a few red ones and they grew amazing! They grew to about 6 feet in my almost white beach sand soil which I think is amazing considering how bad the soil is. They would have gotten taller in richer soil so I will do that next time.
