I haven't ever grown these, and even this year it wasn't on purpose, I have the birds to thank for scattering the bird seed everywhere (don't get me started on WHAT A MESS it has been. ) I think as lovely as they are the bird feeder will be moved somewhere else next year where everything can't take root, its been constant weeding and cleaning I could have had a crop of sunflowers had I let everything grow.

They are however, delightful and a welcome dash of sunny color when we are getting this absolute CRAP weather this summer. I can't wait for the other ones to bloom. Mr K keeps telling me that we can eat the "tasty seeds" (same phrase he uses over and over lol).

Oh, and an A+ for the easiest flower to grow ever, they need NOTHING.
