Moulin Rouge Sunflower

PA Smith's favorite and he is able to fit in two crops per season. I think these tall types of sunflowers are best used as a backdrop in a perennial border. That way when they're spent, you don't have to look at the unsightly mess the plant turns into soon shortly after flowering. I like the richness of Moulin's blooms. These burgundy hyprids are the only ones I grow. Yellow is so pedestrian and living in Kansas, if I want to see yellow sunflowers, I just look outside my house or car windows.
