Lots of birds will eat the immature seeds - that's partly what I grow sunflowers for. Squirrels will also eat the flowers and seedheads. 


Go on, show us a picture ... I'm sure we've seen worse ... we're not that squeamish 


Don't cut the head off - if it's as I imagine I'm sure  the rest of the seeds will develop normally ... unless eaten.

It'll be fine outside -even if it is covered with snow - it's one plant you really don't have to worry about.

My bet is it'll flower next spring ... and yes, you'll notice the flower spike - it'll begin to go upwards like this



only your plant will be bigger and probably have several spikes.


Don't panic when it disappears over the winter - they die right down and reappear in the spring. 

What is this plant please?

deadhead regularly or you'll get seedlings everywhere. They drift on the wind like dandelion seeds.
