This giant sunflower seems to provide a good resting place. This katydid takes center stage while a few others found shelter from the evening rain showers. #giantsunflower #katydid #nightgarden #noweygardens
@eklinke1983 this is my second year. Just one seed from last year grew on it's own and escaped my usual random weeding. Found a perfect spot, somewhat sheltered and gets direct sun in early afternoon for about 3-4 hours.
@eklinke1983 giant sunflowers can be very sensitive to temperature, soil and water. Pest have been eating it's leaves and a downpour had it tipped halfway over but I propped it up and it bloomed anyway!
