I’ve never been able to figure out how to keep regular sunflowers from falling to the ground once they bloom. I think I finally outsmarted gravity this year. OK – I might be giving myself a bit too much credit claiming I conquered gravity, but I will say that my sunflowers finally stayed upright this year. I chose three varieties to try and get an assortment of blooms.
After nearly a decade of fallen-over, path blocking sunflower frustration, I finally have a sunflower success story thanks to the three varieties of dwarf sunflowers that put on a fantastic show in my vegetable garden this year.
