A friend dug up and gave me some volunteer sunflowers, two months ago. They went from 6" to 11 or 12', and are blooming with clear, medium yellow petals and a dark center. Side branches are developing well at all leaf nodes. The flower is not as big as Mammoth, maybe 8". I don't have a camera or I would send a picture. He calls it Russian Sunflower. Is that the right name? And what can anyone tell me about its growth habits? I am wondering if it would be an even better plant if I cut the top off before it starts to bud, if I grow it again next year - or even replant this year!
