My favourite sunflower 2011-09-21

I grew these in 2011 and they are amazing. They grew strongly and flowers lasted well, needing very little or no staking, even against strong wind. They are multi branched and a lovely lemony white colour. I like the way they don't all face to the sun as I was growing them in a central bed. They certainly gave height to my border and I'm certainly growing them again next year.
