Then in late July they start shooting up.
They grow and grow and grow and ...
Bloom and bloom and bloom ...
Until there is a wild profusion of them all over the yard.
The bright yellow flowers continue to bloom and grow all the way through October.
Since I like a natural look, I do not attempt to corral them.
Though I must confess to digging them up by the dozens in the spring and tossing them willy-nilly around the yard.
The Mexican Sunflowers love hot, dry, sunny spots so I let them have them.
I have tried to convince them to grow in slightly shaded areas, but they outright refuse!
And what do the Mexican Sunflowers do during the dark of night?
Grow and bloom, of course!
