Do they only bloom once?I bought a sunflower "bush" which is about 2' tall, has 3 stalks and had about a dozen flowers on it around July 4th- There were a number of new buds showing up after a few weeks, so I cut off the old dried flowers, but the plant seems to have stopped growing and the leaves are browning. I watered it a lot when I first planted it.(probably too much after reading some of the questions) but it gets Plenty of Sun and the soil is sandy on the acidic side so that's probably not it. Do they only bloom once a year or am I doing something wrong?
