There are so many reasons to grow sunflowers that it is hard to know where to begin. Sunflowers make great garden focal points with their tall, strong stems and large, cheerful blossoms. Their impressive height can prove to be quite advantageous to plants that prefer dappled shade, even in a full sun garden you can provide partial shade by planting under sunflowers. Sunflowers are also very attractive to helpful pollinators, such as honeybees, bumblebees and many more.
These beautiful flowers also limit weed growth, their roots help with contaminated soil and last but definitely not least, they are utterly beautiful.
