Garden Series 3 "Sunflowers"
When the zinnias started to grow from seeds, I didn't know a sunflower was also mixed in there. Then I found out my ikebana classmate Cindy, who gave me the seeds, might have mixed the sunflower in with the rest. So this was a big surprise, especially its special color.
This giant sunflower is 14 inches in width and 7 feet tall. Huge! Only two survived though, the deer ate all my other young plants. The orange sunflower below is 6 inches in width and 4 feet tall.
