I planted at most three dozen mammoth sunflowers last spring. They are all coming up fine, some even blooming. However, one in particular is a tiny, what I would describe as dwarf, that is less than three feet tall, that has already bloomed with a tiny flower on it. Any idea what happened?
I'll gladly answer any questions. I would like to know what is going on, thanks!
Edit: I live in Pennsylvania, US, and they were planted in about April. They are closer than I wanted, planted in the ground, but the only difference between the normal plant and the dwarf is that this one was grown from the ground. The rest of the seeds that I did not plant I threw in a hole and nothing grew except this one, I assume.
The plants themselves came from the seeds of one mammoth sunflower last year, which I grew in planters for a few years, then I transplanted them into the ground. It is its own little flower, not connected to any others.
