A few weeks ago I planted seeds for a Mexican sunflower bush. See, we have a hummingbird feeder and I read that these red flowers really attracted them. We have a mated pair of ruby throated hummingbirds that often come by, and I look forward to late summer and early fall when they migrate south and we get tons of them.
Unfortunately, something is eating the sunflower plants. They've really been growing at a fast pace, but I came out one morning and their leafs had huge gaping holes in them. Obviously I can't spray since these plants are meant for the hummingbirds. But it would really help a lot if I knew what was eating them so I could find another solution. But I can't seem to find much evidence.anybody have any thoughts?
