Last night I dashed out to grab a few handfuls of Sunflowers and discovered that in the sort time since I’ve been out there the whole patch has come into bloom. Yipe!
So, what was supposed to be a 20 minute grab and go turned into a mad dash until dark.
It’s hard to believe an improvement on this variety is possible. It come as near to perfection as any Sunflower I’ve grown.
The weather has been a roller coaster of pouring rain, breaks of sun and back to heavy rain. We have only irrigated one time this entire season. Unreal!
With such a tiny dose of summer so far this season these bright and cheerful beauties are a welcome addition!

So jealous! We are holding steady at temps consistently over 100 degrees and have only had 2 quick rains this whole summer :( Every flower in the garden is baking except the hyacinth bean vines, the Crape Myrtle trees and the gomphrena. Glad I get to look at your gorgeous flowers every day!
