Richard I grow Sunrich Orange and Sunrich Lemon yellow. They are my best sellers. I get a buck a piece. Procuts are nice too. I can not give away the bicolors. I plant them 20" apart and they stand up well without support. They get 3.5-4ft tall. I cut them with a 30" stalk. This year I have some transplanted 12" apart and they look good, hope to begin picking this weekend, roughly 6 weeks from transplanting... Bob.

I notice on Kim's web page (http://www.barkingcatfarm.com) what look like short, single-head sunflowers growing up through net supports. Kim, can you tell me what variety those are, and how long the stems are? Is the netting to keep them from falling over? I sell some sunflowers and gladioluses, and would like to get more serious about choosing winning varieties. Stem length seems to be a major difference among them--my initial successes have come with very tall plants, with multiple 24-30" floral stems. Any other varietal suggestions out there?
