I love giant Russian sunflowers. I plant them every chance I get. I’ve dropped seeds into tiny places in small corner gardens. I’ve never gotten anything out them. I have never collected the seeds and roasted them or done anything ambitious like that. I leave them standing and over the winter the birds pick at the seeds. I just love these oversized, big, beautiful, in your face, plus sized flowers. If I am in need of a good cheer or a pick me up, I just go admire my sunflowers.Just looking at them makes me happy.
