Florenza Sunflower

Florenza Sunflower

 This might just be my new favorite sunflower variety.  The color contrast between the pale yellow and deep burgundy red makes this absolutely stunning to say the least.  Plus the inner bright yellow halo glow.


I had a tough sunflower growing season this year.  The problems first started with an early rabbit attack.  When the seeds had just germinated and the plants just started to emerge from the ground the rabbits treated themselves to a delicate treat.  I was able to save a few sunflower seedlings and put a fence around the surviving plants.  Then, in late July and early August the leaves of my sunflower plants were devoured by Japanese beetles.  I am thankful for the few that survived.

ENJOY the following pictures!

All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.

  2. Angie, those are beautiful. I didn't have great luck with sunflowers either this year. I'm going to have to try that variety next year.
