Sunflower recommendation?

LeadFarmerLeadFarmer Posts: 855

Each year me and my little boy plant giant sunflower seeds and compete to see who can grow the tallest (he always wins!).

This year I'd also like to plant a couple of alternate varieties as well, perhaps something a different colour. Can anyone recommend any varieties that have grown well for them please?

    Grown Little leo many times - very nice small compact plants with many flower heads per bush. Ideal for cutting for indoor flower displays if one wishes to do that.
