I attempted to grow some Mammoth Sunflowers last year and failed. It just got to hot and dry. I also think I didn't prepare the soil well enough.

Good luck and keep us updated.

Here is another update! Most of the flowers are open now. They are growing new sets of leafs and buds along the stems now.

Really, really nice. Be sure to post another pic when the others open.

I've got two Mammoths going, no flower yet but they are abut 6' high.
