We did not plant this sunflower--probably some bird or rodent did. Whatever they did, it seems to have worked, this plant is about 9 feet root to crown. (just took the tape measure outside, it's just about 8 feet)

Its topmost face is quite handsome, and attractive to bumble bees. At least 7 more blossoms are yet to open.

Look how it towers over this short man and this tiny puppy!
