I planted these sunflower seeds in my front yard in early December. Here in our desert, we have a 365 day growing season and I wanted to see if I could get two crops of them before mid-summer. It looks like that is possible, since these are already blooming and it's only the end of January! They aren't as tall as last year's crop, which towered over 7 feet! But, I LOVE their color!
