Why are sunflowers companions for bush beans but not pole beans?

takadi(7)May 10, 2009

A lot of sources I've come across say that pole beans and sunflowers aren't good companions, yet several say that bush beans with sunflowers are okay. What's the difference?

I am wondering the same thing.

I saw a video posted on YouTube where a guy had planted pole beans with his Mammoth sunflowers. It seemed that the plants were performing well together but if anyone else has any experiences with the two I'd like to hear about it.
