They are also called Dwarf sunflowers and that is why I always thought they are small garden plants, until I saw them on the fields. These dwarf sunflowers were somewhat shorter than the usual sunflowers but still taller than me.
I was amazed how little care they need, growing by themselves on the fields (and making a huge profit for the vendors).
Yeah, yeah, that was a mean remark but it's true.
Teddy bear sunflower is a real eye-catcher in the border and its long lasting flowers are even more impressive in a vase.
In the same time they are popular vegetables with their tasty and nourishing seeds.
