Teddy Bear sunflowers were planted to enjoy in the garden this summer. They are described by Lake Valley Seed as Giant six inch puffballs of sunny golden-yellow flowers. These dwarf plants make a stunning show even when planted alone. Flowers begin in mid-summer. Very easy to grow and great for kids. The surviving seeds I planted are dwarf alright; but puffballs they are not.
They look nothing like the images I’ve seen. Check out the seed packet at Lake Valley Seed. Nothing puffy about what I’m growing.
Do you suppose the seeds are wrong OR am I doing something wrong?
