A giveaway packet of seeds, which started blooming this week, yielded these cute little dwarf ‘Teddy Bear’ Sunflowers (Helianthus annuus ‘Teddy Bear’). Fluffy ray flowers make up most of the bloom, meaning less pollen for bees, but it is a charming novelty, to say the least.
Zinnia elegans ‘Lilliput’ and ‘Cut and Come Again’ fill the jug, along with purple Mealycup Sage (S. farinacea) and Angelonia (A. angustifolia). Starry, white Garlic Chive blossoms (Allium tuberosum) help cool the brightness down a bit.
