The Q&A Archives: Tall Annuals

Question: I'm a first time gardener and I'm looking for annuals that have some height to them, starting with 12 inches and higher. Could you recommend some by name?

Answer: Well, of course you have sunflowers, which range from 16 inches to 15 feet tall! Here are some others (height varies with particular varieties): celosia (30"), centauria (3-4 feet), cleome (4 feet), cosmos (2-4 feet), strawflower (14" to 4 feet), salvia (14-20") tithonia (3-6 feet), snapdragon (16" to 4 feet), zinnia (10" to 2 1/2 feet). Hope this gets you started!
