Sunflowers

Sunflower

Here are one of my sunflowers. This one in particular is working on growing it’s huge flower. This is a Mammoth sunflower and it’s expected to be over 8 feet tall with large flowers. If all goes well the flower will bloom and when it dies it will create delicious sunflower seeds.

  • Oh, how fun! My sunflowers haven’t even emerged from the ground yet (well, they may have after today’s rain–I haven’t had a chance to check). When the seeds start to form, do make sure you watch for birds. The birds around my garden loved my sunflowers, and they were stripped clean before I thought the seeds could possibly be ripe.

  • I have planted some too but they do not look near as good as yours do!! Great pictures, very detailed!! I added you to my blogroll so I wouldn’t forget to come back!! Keep me posted! lol!!!

  • Thanks everyone, I was warned by neighbors that you have to start early in our area. Yesterday one of the small hybrid ones started to bloom. I’ll be posting pictures soon.

  • Sunflowers were the first plant I had as a child, about age 5. This plant started me on gardening.
    I look forward to your future posts!!! 🙂
