    These are lovely. And I hadn't even thought to grow sunflowers in pots, obviously you can and very successfully too. Or are they Jerusalem Artichokes or something else in that family?

    Great pics. Thanks for sharing. Have this "wet" spot around some bushes that only had fern...Put some Hostas and coleus in there. They love it.

    Your flowers are beautiful. You must have a green thumb.

    Beautiful! I used to have a moonflower but we moved and I lost my seeds to start another one. I loved the silvery look they had in the moonlight.

    Adequate water plus keep piling dirt around trunk to give more support, or plant by a fence.

    Very nice, do you have luck planting your moonflower seeds? I don't, I live just across the lake, in Mi so zone 5.........when did you start your sunflowers? The rabbits ate mine and I think it might be too late to replant............sheesh.............calla

    I love your teddybear sunflowers. So pretty! Well I love it all the moonflowers and hostas too. LOL!

    Ever read the book The Moonflower Vine? I can't remember who wrote it now. But what a neat book.

    You nick the seed with a nail file and soak them 48 hours before planting. Works for me every time.
