They are only at this stage right now:
|Me and the Sunflowers! Or ... future Sunflowers!|
There are two varieties in there - Little Becka and Orange Hobbit; Mom started both from seed. According to the packet, the Little Becka ones are supposed to bloom early, "with large, fiery copper-red, pollen-free flowers with dark hearts, yellow halos, and golden tips." They are only supposed to get 2-3 feet tall and be compact. The Orange Hobbitses are also a compact variety. The are supposed to be heavily-flowered and reach 1-2 feet high, with vivid orange flowers.
|"It's our first time growing these!"|
See ... the last time Mom planted Sunflowers, she put in Maximillians, and they got huge. I mean ... HUGE. I mean ... yeah. They were a bit out of control. For those who would rather not click the hyperlinks, let's flash back to Cam in the garden, September 2016:
|Cammie and the Maximillian Sunflowers that ate Manhattan|
See what I mean? Huge.
Anyway, we still have a few of those, but Mom moved them into the Wildflower Garden and we'll see how they do. In the meantime, she's anxious to see how these smaller varieties do!
Oh. And in case anyone is wondering ... I am NOT the one who took a few bites out of those leaves! Nor is Cam.
|"They do look mighty tasty, though..."|
I could have, but I didn't.
