|SUNFLOWER - MAMMOUTH
Helianthus annuus - Grown by natives and settlers alike for seeds, fibre and fodder, their wide sunny faces have always been a welcoming sight. Country fair sized - some up to 30 cm across. Note how the ripe seeds form a perfect spiral pattern in the flower’s centre. Ht. to 2.5 m N.
All the world loves the joyful exuberance of the sunflower. Easy to grow and wonderful for children (of all ages!) These popular cutting flowers are my daughter’s favourites and always remind me of her sunny disposition.
