Helianthus salicifolius 'Table Mountain'
This one really caught my eye even though I swore off Helianthus because of past aphid problems. Is anyone growing it and is it as cool as it looks?
From what I've read, it was developed in New Zealand in 1993 from a cross between Helianthus 'Golden Pyramid' and 'Autumn Queen' and only grows to about 16 inches tall. Zone hardiness is a bit confusing depending on what website you look at - anywhere from zone 4, 5 or 6 and up.
Take a look at the video in the link below. It's short.
Hmmmmm.... Just noticed, it sure looks a lot taller than 16 inches in that video.
Here is a link that might be useful: Helianthus
