The Autumn Beauty sunflower is a blend of red, orange, and yellow with a black center. The plant grows up to 7 feet tall. It can produce as many as 20 flowers per stem. The blooms may reach 10 inches in diameter.
I grew these from seeds and have a dozen more just sprouting that need to be added to the bed. Here is the summer’s first bloom of an Autumn Beauty. Big, bold, and brassy.
Along with a lily nearing the peak of its color.
A three year effort to grow a vine on my fence finally resulted in flowers this summer. I don’t remember the name-can you identify? Small, delicate, and filigree.
