maximum sunflowers

These sunflowers (Helianthus maxilimianus) are flowering in the garden now, with hundreds of flower heads on each stem. They are taller than me, and fill the garden bed with yellow sunshine, even when the sky is cloudy. And they are perennial, they come back year after year, as long as you fence them in so the deers don't get to them. Send me a note if you want seeds.
