questions re: Sunflower Sunny Smile
Not sure if I should post this here or perhaps the market forum, but...
Despite my less-than-stellar success in the past with sunflowers, I am going to once again plant some for cut flowers for the local market.
While looking through some catalogs, I came across Sunny Smile, which looks like a great dwarf type.
But I'm confused....
My question is, if I pot up a plant of Sunny Smile, will it rebloom? The description says it blooms season-long, regardless of day length, but I'm not sure if they are referring to the same plant re-blooming, or if they mean I can succession-plant.
The description also says branching can "be induced" which leads me to believe it naturally does not branch.
Basically, I'm wondering what I would be selling to the customer. Would it be a single-stem plant, with one bloom (presumably at point of sale), which will not bloom again? If so, I'm not so sure how popular a seller it would be. I suppose I could try to induce branching, which would help with bloom count, and of course I could perhaps pot up three to a pot or something like that...
I have had Big Smile in pots for my personal use for many years, and while I love it, I am disappointed in re-bloom - a few smaller blooms, but not much to speak of. As a customer, I'm not sure I would buy a pot in bloom just for that short period of time.
Any thoughts, opinions, suggestions? Sorry if this is a beginner-type question - but that's what I am, lol!
Thanks for the help!
