Can anyone tell what kind of sunflower this is? It's about 4 1/2' tall, has branches, and the flower is around 4" across.

When I try searching for it, I get red sunflowers, bright yellow sunflowers, big sunflowers... pretty much everything but what I said to search for.

Mike, Take a look at Vanilla Ice Sunflower. My sister in law grows it in VA and your photo reminds me of it.

Sure looks like it, Scott. I read a description of it too, and that could be it. Small center, usually doesn't reach 5'... Thank You!
