Peach Passion Sunflower

 The "peachy" color of this flower comes from the middle portion.  The petals themselves are not peach, in fact they are lemon yellow in color.


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.
