I have been anxiously waiting for my volunteer sunflowers to start blooming so I could see what is what. My Evening Suns and Autumn Beauties are popping out all over, but no sign of my Moonwalkers until yesterday. It is such a pretty pale yellow that makes a nice counterpoint to the bright yellows and oranges of the other two sunflowers.
I will collect some seeds to give away to friends so they can plant their own. The rest will be left on the stalks to feed the little birds who stick around over the winter. I probably won’t have to start seeds in the greenhouse next spring. The sunflowers are doing a good job seeding themselves in my flower gardens.
