Growing Miniature Sunflowers

I tried to grow miniature sunflowers on my back patio from seed this summer. For the longest time my flowers looked like this:

I wondered if they ever would bloom into sunflowers. Maybe they weren’t sunflowers after all. Maybe they were really some sort of mad man eating plant?








Nope. A few days later, they proved to be sunflowers.

Very pretty! We had a small sunflower grow under our birdfeeder. I'm guessing it was from one of the seeds that fell out of the feeder. Pretty tough little seed to find a way to plant itself and grow.

Lisa,

I didn't know that they had mini sunflowers either! That is until I got a bunch of free seeds from an Earth Day event last April.
