Toby says: “Wow! Now we have a really giant sunflower! Giraffe was bred by RHS committee member Victoria Wakefield following years of selection to find the tallest sunflower for UK growing conditions. Ideal for a sunny wall or fence and definitely the one to grow for the kids in any tallest sunflower competitions! Height 520cm (17') - and why not try and go beyond" Flowers July-September. HA - Hardy annual.
Easy to grow and a real favourite with children. Flowers like very large daisies with brightly coloured petals. Pollen-free varieties are ideal for hayfever sufferers and for cutting. Use petals and seeds in salads and cakes.
