have done sunflowers in containers now for a few years. flowers are spectacular but, as i understand, the display is short-lived. this year the choice was "pacino" and "solar chocolate gold". Perhaps the most successful as any I've tried. So... i would like to hear recommendations on the container sunflowers for the longest displays . Any varieties better than the two above? thanks for help
Aw right !! This variety is exactly one i am considering after seeing it in a garden design book. Update on mine: "Solar Chocolate Gold" outperformed "Pacino" ---keeps the leaves better and many more secondary blooms. BTW: my containers are pondside; have had some muskrat issues but plant stands have helped a lot.
