For years I have wanted to grow those HUGE sunflowers everyone else in the 
world but me has. We put black oil sunflower seeds in one of our bird 
feeders. This year we have SUNFLOWERS!!! First time. My questions: Are they 
perennial? Do they get a bigger diameter as they grow? And how come the 
seeds from the packs you buy at the store have a different stem and don't 
look as healthy? Thanks!!!
