Budding

sunflower bud

The beauty of a solitary sunflower bud.

Promise of beauty and food.

These stunners not only provide food for the butterflies, particularly monarchs and swallow-tails, they brought in the bumblebees and hummingbirds as well.

As an added bonus, the plant and roots will help pull chemicals from the soil – and the seeds will provide winter food for the birds.
