Helianthus (Helianthus)

Love this one, although don't know which variety it is, swapped it, quite large flowers and around 5ft tall.

Looks similar to mine Simbad...a few of us have them or look like that too, we are all trying to find it's variety..:((
By the way.... mine grows to over 5 feet and spread like mad, I pull them up like weeds, yet they grow on, I also find even in winter they work there way under ground....

Yes this ones a bit like that too Michaella, thought I'd moved it from one spot and ended up with it in both, have Lemon Queen too this isn't quite as rampant as that, maybe my heavy clay keeps it in check a bit,although give it time only had it a couple of years, do love it though, off to have a look at yours now :-)

Think I have this too Kathy, mine are about 5 feet tall too. Love them at this time of year. Mine dont go mad but like you say, maybe the clay helps.

Just looked at Michaellas Dawn and seems lots of people have this and don't know its name.
