Mexican Sunflower Review

I wasn't sure when I ordered these flower seeds from a picture but after I got the seeds and planted them I love this flower. I was so pleased with them I ordered more. They are tall and beautiful and next summer I plan to plant them all over the property especially in and around the our olive orchard. Thank you Grow Organic
