Baby Sunflower


Meet the baby sunflower!  This summer I'm working on beginning to landscape the large and empty front flower bed.  I have been purchasing 3-5 plants a month for it beginning in May and continuing on until September or October (depending on when the nurseries close for the season).  Thus far, we now have: a forsythia, a flowering quince, two hostas, two shasta daisies, a small deep red daisy, and two purple things with silvery foliage (whose name escapes me), AND this baby sunflower!  The plant only grows 2-ft. tall, and the blooms are barely 3" across.  It's cheerful little face is turned towards the house.  It makes me smile!
