Here’s the neighbor’s wildflower meadow right now. Feast your eyes on the huge perennial sunflower flopping over into someone else’s yard. They don’t seem to mind.
This plant is helianthus giganteus, and giganteus it most certainly is. I have tried to convey this in the photos, but in case you can’t tell, it is close to 20 feet tall!
Not surprisingly, the flowers are alive with pollinators enjoying the late season bonus. This would make a stunning hedge – if you had a lot of room.
