Sunflower, August 10, 2015

Sunflower, Prentiss county, Mississippi, USA

I'm not sure exactly which Sunflower this is as I got it from a packet of mixed seeds. The plant is just over waist-high and branching to make several heads.  I am a bit disappointed in it as the blooms are a very pale yellow.  Other Sunflowers I have grown were brilliant yellow, almost orange.  Whatever the color, I'm glad to see it growing and blooming!

Have a Beautiful Week!

  1. It is still pretty, even in a lighter shade.

  2. Gorgeous close-up!

  3. I actually LIKE the pale yellow comparing to the more normal intense yellow. It would make a great bouquet with other flowers I think.

  4. A most unusual shade of yellow for a sunflower. Most appealing.

  5. Gorgeous! I love sunflowers. Have a great weekend!


I enjoy your comments!
