I am going to plant the Children's Tepee Garden and I am trying to avoid INVASIVE PLANTS. My book says that SOME
sunflowers are invasive. But they didn't list "Aztec Gold
Hybrid" in my book. Please advise me if these are OK or
if another type would be better!

It's true that some members of the sunflower family can be invasive, especially Helianthus tuberosus (Jerusalem artichoke, but the Aztec Gold Hybrid is an annual plant. Unless you allow the seeds to fall onto the soil in your garden, it won't be back again next year.
