So unfortunately we did not get any mature seeds from the state record sunflower. I asked Chris Brown why he thought this was, as last year I only got a handful of mature seeds on my 17 foot sunflower -> most of which got eaten by critters leaving me with only 7 seeds.

Chris told me that sunflowers might actually need other sunflowers to pollinate correctly, he has had this same issue. My question becomes: did my sunflower last year pollinate from something random? My neighbors (down the road) had some sunflowers in the 10 foot range and this is the only possible source of pollen I can think of

Lots to read, skip through if sunflowers bore you lol
