sunflowersI have an ornamental sunflower plant in a pot. When I got it, there was one small but beautiful sunflower open and several buds. The original flower is gone, and the buds are large and trying to open, but they never make it to the fully open flower stage...They push out some yellow petals, open a wee bit, then die. What am I doing wrong?
