Sunflowers here began with Kong 7 or 8 years ago; it has self-seeded since then. These plants attain 10 ft avg. w/ 12 to 14 ft + not unheard of. A multiple flowering variety.

I LOVE that first one with the green center. What variety is it?

So the one I like isn't available to buy? It's a morph from previous Kong sunflower? I'm attracted to the green center.

That's correct.
The perennial Maximilian has a green center as well; however it's bloom is consistently considerably smaller (plant shorter too, appx. 6'). It is occasionally listed; a wild flower with a healthy multiplication factor, mine is grown next to the alley, on the other side of the fence. The 'Max' is a Monarch BF favorite.
