Sunflowers

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on September 2, 2010

Sunflowers are fun to grow.  Some of them can get very large and most will grow like weeds if you let them.  These came up in the front yard a year after I had seeded some in the side yard.  The ones in the side yard had apparently spread seed all over.  The first one is a typical sunflower.

This one has some problems, though.

Ah, the culprit emerges.
