Gardening - The Hot Hot Sun

Looking for a quick growing pop of color in your garden? Looking to grow a quick garden "wall?" Sunflowers may be the answer. Coming in shades of yellow and orange, various cultivars range in height from a few feet to over ten feet. True to their name, they love full sun; yes, even in Florida. In fact, sunflowers are native to the Americas and are thought to have first been cultivated in Mexico, although they can be successfully grown as far north as central Canada. Water them often to ensure quick growth, but they can stand a short drought. Gorgeous, huh?
