Although I can't grow these....I'd like to blog about it for future reference when I do move to a different house with more sun! My latest Gardening How To magazine speaks of sunflowers that are bigger than the Mammoth variety! American Giant and Sunzilla top out at 16 FEET tall! :o Kong is a branching variety that grows 10-14' tall and Titan grows 10-12' tall. I can't wait till I am able to grow some of these in the future! The article also said that they will always bloom facing east, so plant accordingly! For cut sunflowers....cut when a few petals come off the center. To harvest seeds....let dry and tap out the seeds. Any that don't fall out are not ready yet!
