WANTED: Wanted...Helianthus, Swamp Sunflower

oldscpmedic(8)October 13, 2005

I am looking for the tall variety that stands fairly well on it;s own with clusters of 3-4 inch yellow daisy like flowers.

I have:

Daturas: White DBL, PurpleWhite DBl, Pinkish DBL, and other crosses.

Asters: purple dome, proffesor kippenburg both are blue with yellow centers and hit about knee high with afternoon sun only.

Solidago: yellow 6 footer...this came supposedly as a david phlox but I think someone goofed.

Coneflowers: White, purples, double deckers....all seeds

Black eyed susan: Annuals of several different colors and also goldsturms.

Iris: whites, purples...I do not know their names.

Petunia: I have grandmothers wild petunias that have been coming back for nearly 40 years....no jokes. Seeds only if lucky

I have several more that I know I have left out. I know I am new to all this but if something I send is not right I have plenty of back ups....just wrk with me.

Thx all for looking...

Did you get the helianthus you wanted? E-mail me if not. I've got seed and I can dig up rosettes (they come up after the plant has finished blooming).

Not yet but I found some flowering at my daughter;s school...they seem quite obliged to let me poke around in the patch...just have not done so.

Never one to pass on an offer since I have plenty of land and hopefully plenty of time too;) With that said, I will certainly take a few of the seeds or a rosette...just let know what I need to do....kinda new to all this gardenin' stuff online per se'.

Let me know if you still need some. I do have some blooming and could give you a couple. Alicia7b, how do you get the seeds?

I am going to start checking the sunflowers two weeks after they are done flowering. Within 2-4 weeks the seeds should be ripe. The seeds are nutlets that are in with the dried bracts, and when they're ripe you can just shake them out. The seeds will be small and dark brown when ripe.
