First sunflowers of the summer

"Sunny Smile" F1 Hybrid Dwarf Sunflower

"Sunny Smile" F1 Hybrid Dwarf Sunflower

I was just looking back on photos from last year, and these sunflowers are opening up an entire month earlier than they did last summer! We had a warm spring and everything got off to an early start. I always associate sunflowers with the end of summer, beginning of fall …. nice to see these so early this year!

These are dwarf sunflowers, about 3 feet tall with nice large single-flower heads. I planted them all along the front of the garden. I’m hoping they will all open up together soon, and make a very pretty border.
