Perfect Duluth Day | Duluth News Events Music and More



Do we at least have the Duluth record?

Apparently, the record for heads on a single sunflower plant is in the low 100s. This one from PDD’s West Duluth Headquarters only has about 25 heads — which the Internet tells us is actually rather common. Anyway, some critter chewed this sucker down last night, so our attempt at the record has fallen considerably short.

Grandfather’s 104-headed sunflower started as a weed in his carrot patch … now it could be a record breaker

  1. That’s crazy! Our sunflowers are all singles.

  2. I used to think that sunflowers were super creepy. So Mr. Emmadogs, one summer, secretly planted some by our back fence. There I was, innocently doing the dishes and looking out our kitchen window, and something started cree--ping o--ver the fence … SUNFLOWERS!!! much like the pods in Donald Sutherland’s back yard in Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

    Now I find them to be oddly … pretty. Soothing. We have some in a vase now, as a matter of fact. I find myself losing … thought … though.

  3. My stand of thirty-something sunflowers on the corner of my property is the envy of the neighborhood … save the two or three twelve footers in Leon and Britt’s garden. | Sep 17, 2012 | New Comment
  4. We have at new contender in the 20+ head category, but the sudden cold weather might might make additional blooms less likely.
