Love the pic!
The sunnies look fantastic. How many plants have you grouped together to get that effect?

It is only 2 plants, Shine. They had lots of flowers per plant then toppled over under the weight of the developing seeds.

WOW!! I didn't know that a couple of plants can produce so many flowers!!
I had 6 plants this year and they only produced one great big flower per plant. I think mine was the giant russian or something like that. What variety is yours? I wouldnt mind buying some seed.

Shine, not sure what variety as I got them from a friend at our garden Club. But... I have saved some seed so send me a PM of your details and I'll post you some seed. It will be pure as there were no other Sunflowers within cooee of our place in the country.
