My favorite sunflower!
I planted the seeds in various locations in my yard and corn garden to attract the good guy bugs. If you have never grown these you are in for a treat! These only get about 4-5 ft tall and produce the most amazing orange flowers ALL season long. Each plant produces multiple flowers at once and they make great cut flower bouquets. These are super easy to grow and I always have people ask what they are.

I grow these every year along a fence that faces the street. The flowers are smallish (for a sunflower), but they are prolific. Takes a while for them to get going, but come on strong once they do. I cut back the spent flowers and the plants keep blooming until frost. A fabulous flower for bees and butterflies.
