It’s been a great year for those hot weather plants like sunflowers, just as I predicted. I planted nine mammoth sunflowers on the south side of the house near the sidewalk. They are on the dragon side.

Sunflowers are a great example of the the yang wood (Jia) element and how it works. They grow giant sized woody trunks in a short amount of time, all the energy thrusting upward until it blooms. If you’ve grown them before then you know that once they get going it’s not the water that makes them grow – it’s the sun. The yang fire (Bing) element is what makes them so tall.
