I love sunflowers. They come in all different shapes and sizes. The giant sunflowers have tasty seeds. They bring birds, bees and butterflies to my garden. They provide a great "screen" for our front fence. They have provided shade and hiding places for the chickens. And they look great in my windowsill.
My favorite sunflowers of all time are Mexican sunflowers. I love the brilliant red/orange petals against the deep green leaves. We have 2 just starting to bloom, and the hummingbirds are happy!
