Has anyone here grown any? Would love the names of some different varieties!

Indeed, there are a wide number of seed strains developed with different flower colours and shapes, as well as differing degrees of dwarfism.
Helianthus annuus 'Teddy Bear' is a distinctive classic. Fully double flower heads, 8-15 cm wide, in a cheery shade of orange-yellow.

Now this is an interesting seed strain. Helianthus annuus 'Ms Mars'. It's one of those unusual pink sunflower strains. It gets to 3 feet, so the tall end of 'dwarf'. I see that Chiltern also has 'Teddy Bear'.


Even more odd, but somewhat expensive, is this seed strain from Meicco: Helianthus annuus 'Pink Pooh'. It's pink and double, to 3-4 feet.
