Less than a month ago, I was walking around the butterfly garden when I noticed a volunteer seedling. Since I keep a bird feeder in this area I thought it must be from a stray sunflower seed.
Within two weeks this seedling had shot up to 5 feet tall and was already covered in buds.
Four days later.....
I've never had a sunflower with more than one big flower at the top. This was a special treat to find multiple blooms and branches. Usually the birdseed sunflowers are much smaller.
