I attended a party recently where someone brought about a dozen budded sunflowers to share. Of course I took one home to plant in my garden. What a cool surprise when it bloomed red-orange. The bees like it a lot, also. This is not near as tall as a yellow sunflower with a giant head full of seeds that grows 8 to 10 feet tall. The flower pictured above is about 3 feet (one meter) high, at most.
