Love this plant. It’s a lot more like a zinnia then a sunflower. And so bright orange. Someone planted some in the laneway leading up to our community garden and they have grown to over 6 feet tall.
I have been growing these since 2003. I bought one pack of seeds, and have had them come back diligently every year since. they have gotten close to 10 feet tall here (Birmingham, Alabama)! i love giving these seeds and plants away (trust me there will be lots of babies come spring….)
