Tithonia diversifolia

I've always called them Mexican sunflowers, but aka
Bolivian sunflower. https://floridata.com/Plants/A...
12-15 ft tall(!), lots of blooms, makes great cut flower display, bees love them. Can cut to 6 ft early. Cut to 3 ft in winter. Great plant! ;)

By whatever name you call it, the sunflower is a splendid specimen! I tip my hat to you. Hurray!
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

Great banner Cal!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
