Well, of course you have sunflowers (Helianthus), which range from 16 inches to 15 feet tall! Here are some others: cockscomb (Celosia) (30 in.), cornflower (Centaurea) (3-4 feet), cleome (4 feet), strawflower (Helichrysum) (14 in. to 4 feet), salvia (14-20 in.) Mexican sunflower (Tithonia) (3 to 6 feet), snapdragon (Antirrhinum) (16 in. to 4 feet), zinnia (10 in. to 2 1/2 feet). Consult plant tags in store to determine which ones will thrive in your region.
