The reason I planted them is because the people I bought the seeds from say that they can exceed 14 feet tall with 16 feet at maximum. I am going to really concentrate on beating 16 feet by strict watering and fertilizing. By doing this maybe I can get 12 feet out of them.Chuck, I planted giant Russian sunflowers once! At the time I had a brick bungalow and by the end of summer they were towering above the gutters.
This is just one Mexican sunflower. Photo taken last year. I love em.I've found that sunflowers are one of the easiest plants to plant, I don't even bother digging a hole any more; I just cast the seeds into my garden.
I grow them every year (various varieties), but this year I'm growing Mexican Sunflowers for the first time.
