Giant Sunflower

This is a picture of a giant sunflower that my mother sent me. She has several sunflowers next to it that she planted from the same pack of seeds but this one is 2-3 times taller than all the rest. I guess it is just a different variety that got mixed in. Judging from a picture that I have of my wife standing next to it, I estimate that it is about 13-14 feet. By the time I saw it in person it began to droop with the weight of the mature seeds. Believe it or not this is nowhere near the world record, which the latest I could find was in 2004 from the netherlands standing almost 25 and a half feet tall.

Nice, my purple hyacinth vine was planted late, but is growing. Have seeds left over from last year.
