My daughter asked me to buy this "Australian sunflower seed" in the supermarket and planted it last October. This is it now after 3 months, with small and colorful cutie flowers. There's pink, light pink, orange, light green, light yellow and yellow flowers. Pleasing to the eyes!

I love gardening and I plant a variety on species on my garden. I had sun flower on my garden but not this one. I feel great joyed when I see that my plants are having flowers on it. It make my mind so relax which encourage me to plant more and more. I have more than 50+ variety of coloring plants on my garden garden and I need to include this species too Don't you feel good at your mind when the plant which you plant starts giving you something ?

I just can't believe it too that it's an Australian Sunflower (name in pack)... sunflower don't look like that whether it's australian or another *LOL. Maybe it's a mistake naming it... As in the packet, it will just have 60 meters in height. What I'm amazed about that plant was, it bloomed with so many little colorful flowers! Really nice lilac!

My husband and I love to plant ornamental plants. We have mostly ornamental plants and only few flowering plants. We were so excited since we just renovated our house and planting plants will really add more beauty to it. I will try to look for Australian sunflower seed here in our place. I hope I can find one. I think that it is a real beauty as you have described it having different colors of pink, light pink, orange and etc. I have a question though, does this plant thrive in cool places. I live in a cool place so I just want to know if planting it here would be ok. Thanks!

There's no inset in the package about your question anne. Basically, the growth requirement of any plants are temperature, water and nutrition. I think cool places are a plus for like this not so unique plants. Uh uh, no offense meant for this plant, what I mean in not so special or unique in the essense that it has no special guide to follow in planting. Well, I've seen no special instruction then... Seems you have a cool place with pleasing house and plants anne! Hope to see yours soon!

That's great! I don't have the features of a person with green thumb. I tried planting something way back in the past and it failed big time :( But my dad takes quite a lot of his time planting and tending plants. I don't know where he got them but he gets those plants which are dying and he tries to revive them. He's doing a wonderful job :D At least he had something to do during his free time :)

I used to buy flowering plants and orchids for my mother. She have a big garden in our house and it has been her hobby for a very long time now. She even earn some money from her hobby. Now that I have my own house, but unfortunately, have no soil to plant. My backyard is cemented and have only a very little space to plant which is in the Grotto. I am fascinated everytime a chili would sprout out of the seeds that we just throw away there. I don't have any flowering plant at home, but just a bamboo plant inside my house which is a souvenir from a 50th wedding anniversary that we attended. They say that it is for long life and good fortune.

That's so nice to have flowering plants at home. Unfortunately I don't have them at home since I live in an apartment and therefore the conditions are not good to grow the plants. I love China

Yes, I do. I have a number of flowering plants in the house, front room, family room, and even out on the deck in the back of the house. There are different plans, and flowers are of different colors, very beautiful, pleasant, and refreshing. I enjoy them very much.

Hi, I had a craze of planting variety of flowery plants around the home at all seasons. That was a time when I was at my native village. Now as I moved to city and living on the higher floors, all my wishes minimised to in-plant decorations with limited source. However, I do my best effort to good looking plants and flowery atmosphere around my windows and cornors of the room. Regards Thank-s

We have a few flowering plants, mostly orchids and a few local ones which I don't even know the names of. But we sort of utilize our backyard to plant fruit-bearing plants and a few veggies. We have a relatively big backyard considering we're living in the city, and with grocery costs ever increasing, it's one way of helping cut down on that cost :)

Wow! I love backyards *LOL... sad I have none. I just have a terrace for my plants staying area... If I have my dream retirement house now, surely there's backyard for plants and trees that I desired. You're lucky you have a big place to accomodate your "all" plants beamer! Keep them growing and bearing *LOL! Really nice to have those!
