Taiyo Sunflower at Fairshare Farm, SE Minneapolis

It’s so exciting to see the sunflowers start to blossom; the varieties chosen for the low tech blend are pretty fun.  Lemon Queen (above) is nearly twelve feet tall with multiple blooms and it’s a bee and butterfly magnet.  Teddy Bear (below left) is bright yellow, short, fuzzy and adorable.  Taiyo (left),  a Japanese heirloom, has a large single head per stalk and it’s orange- yellow with a big, brown velvety center.

Send some pics and we’ll post them!
