Beautiful every year

I have had these sun flowers from seed I bought from you growing for over 25 years. They are consistently the most trouble free and beautiful, with a large showing of flowers, variety I have ever had. They are very easy to relocate in their dormant stage (Dec.-Feb.) and can be shared with friends and family.

Off and running first year.

Put these in quite late but by mid August they're 4 feet tall and have multiple blooms on each plant. Put them on the slope of a drainage ditch in clay soil and they seem to love it. Can't wait until they spread next year.

Planted last year. Good growth-no flowers. Cut down in Fall. This year 6' tall and 5-6 flowers per branch starting in mid July. Looks great!

I LOVED them (at first)! They do grow very tall & showy, but quickly spread by seeds and roots. Very difficult to keep in control. If you do grow them, they will branch more fully if you pinch the tops off at about 6 inches - and again as they grow.
