I tend to think this might be called Giant Sunflower because the darned thing grows so tall. It is at least 12 feet tall. It does not bloom until September. I planted it in my yard a couple of years ago not knowing exactly what it was and still have not identified it to my satisfaction. I do have trouble distinguishing these sunflower types. Anyway, I tried some photos of it today. Here are a couple. If any botanists out there know which one this is, I will take the info and post it.
