Everyone loves sunflowers,

and there is always room for a few even in a small garden.

Bees love their copious amounts of pollen—

an important reason not to grow the hybrids sold for cut flowers, which are pollenless.
Besides adding cheer, they make a fine living fence, a trellis for beans or morning glories, a playhouse for kids, and their rich seeds attract birds.
If you have chickens, plant some just outside their run, where the seeds can drop, or you can throw the mature heads to them for a nutritious treat that gives them lots of entertainment.
