I have some photos somewhere, perhaps I'll post one.
Sunflowers generally need a lot of sun. They may grow some in semi-shady areas, but they won't do well at all in the shade. (I live in the sunflower state, KS)
Or does that area get more sun than what I'm guessing?
It ranges from full shade to full sun. I'm working on getting some full sun areas on my 1-acre since it was almost complete shade 3 years ago. Last year 2 sunflowers just popped up in the garden and this area will get similar sun. Compared to packets of seeds, this huge bad for $20 would compare to a packet of seeds selling for a penny!

The finch's go crazy for the seeds still on the flower. Fun to watch. Do you just let the flowers filled with seed fall to the ground or do you break them up and spread? When you grow for your birds, do you deseed the flower or just cut the flower head for the birds? Thanks.
