I got the seeds for this Sunflower at http://www.seedsofchange.com/ . At about 9 feet, this one towers over the plants that are in the same bed. The Sunflower is the birth flower of those in the sign of Leo. Having had a birthday two days ago, I'm almost a Leo so It's no wonder I'm drawn to sunflowers! Coincidentally today is the first day, astrologically, for Leos!
