I planted Dorado Sunflowers this year and I'm disappointed because they seem to have only one flower per plant. Is this normal? Or will they develop more as the season progresses? They are beautiful flowers, I was just hoping for more of them.

Although it is excellent for cutting, Dorado is a single stemmed variety, so what you are seeing is normal. For multiple flowers per plant look for varieties that are described as branching such as Go Bananas or Chianti for example.
