But a rather nice one Sara!

I like those dark ones

That's rather gorgeous

Its a pain though when you acquire a plant you really want only to discover its the wrong one.  

I agree though, it's very nice Sara

I love it! It was such a lovely surprise

Hope one of mine turns out like that, it's a beauty

Hi Sara, that's beautiful, I have two varieties of dark sunflowers - Velvet Queen and Black Magic, love them both

Hi Orchid Lady, I am certainly going to look out for more variety next year, I thought I had dwarf and giant yellows, I am very happy that it seems maybe 3 will be this chocolate colour. (my giant one has reach 7ft and has only just started producing a flower!)

I'm getting some dwarf ones for next year too, I have some in pots by my back door but they are a bit big so dwarf ones would look lovely there  There are so many varieties.....I LOVE them 

Have you seen the sunflower thread?

No I haven't, this is my first year of growing them so I shall spread my wings a little more next year.

I went away overnight to collect my son from a week with his Aunt and came back to these! (Still no yellow ones! But I am happy!)

They are beautiful Sara, I've just brought one of mine indoors as it looks like it's going to break in the wind!!
