Is that a perennial sunflower? A maximillian or Prairie Sunflower? Neat how tall it is!

It is an annual sunflower. I wonder which cultivar it is. A monster, but with very pretty blossoms. Long stem too, to boot.

Yes, it is pretty! I like how it is tall and not drooping, like some of them when they are top heavy.

Look how it is today:

The stems are really sturdy. I had to climb on a ladder to take this pic:

Good size blossoms. I hope to get some seeds to share with fellows WSers. :-)

Wow!! I'd say that's a monster of a sunflower!!!
You save seeds from those and we can do a trade LOL :0

Maybe you'd like some perennial Maximilian Sunflower or annual Moulin Rouge?
