Description
This is the true grandfather species of them all—the basic annual sunflower that figured so prominently in Native American ritual, fabric making, and foods. Flowers are only about 3-4 inches across, rather like a large, single black-eyed susan on rangy, 3-foot, sandpapery plants. Do not confuse this one with its hundreds of descendants including the garden giants with huge, seed filled centers—they’re all hybrids of this species. State flower of Kansas.

      Added them to our garden, and yard. We enjoyed them all summer, and the birds enjoyed them in the fall and winter, especially once we started to get snow.
