SOLVED: Tall lovely plantswhat are they?

Arlington, VA

I often plant and forget in my gardens! I think I planted some sunflower seeds last year which these might be? They are about 3 1/2 feet tall and growing fast! HELP! (I don't know why they are appearing upside down........or sideways.........they are nice and tall!

Perhaps these are perrennial sunflowers. They also spread by root runners.

I agree with Suse, looks like sun choke/jerusalem artichoke. AKA perennial sunflowers. Helianthus tuberosus. Nearly impossible to get rid of. Invasive. Some people say they like the taste of the tubers (but I think they are horrible...the tubers, not the people). The tubers are noted for their fart-producing properties. Sorry, but it is true.
