They are facing away from the sun ALL DAY. Not just in the morning or in the evening. That warrants some time of explaination, I would think. I have
raised them for many years now, they are one of my favorite flowers and the stems make excellent kindling, the seeds are edible, and watching the bees
and insects around them is for me, downright mesmerizing. I know that they litererally follow the sun, hence their name, but this year they just are
not doing that, even in the bud stages.
