I have some weird looking leaves on my sunflowers. They are ones I grew from seed, Burpee Evening Sun, and transplanted into a new flower bed on the east side of my patio. They get 6+ hours of sun but it is mostly morning sun. I don’t see any holes in the stems. I’ve, also, found one very tiny white grub like creature on the back of a leaf. On one plant the tiny leaves and the bud turned black and got hard. I think it might be Midges? The other have these curled, twisted leaves up by the top of the stem or big holes chew in the leaves. Any suggestions as to what might be happening?
