Nope. Not confused.  Technically, you made a boo boo paragraph, but in reality, I think most people will know what you meant.

Bad paragraph! Birds are chirping and sunflowers are left standing, just in case you were confused!

Gold finches love sunflowers. I hear them chirping all the time. I leave them standing into the winter for cardinals. My sunflowers are volunteers--have been for 40 years!

Ten to 12 food sunflowers are huge.  I'd like to see those.

I've only grown sunflowers once and they were not that tall.  I remember my dad growing them when I was quite young, and I remember climbing them.  They seemed 10 to 12 feet tall to me, but may not have been.

A pity, Kathy!

Joan, the lemon queens I plant are lemon yellow in color. The Mexican sunflowers are, indeed, sunflowers :) Nice surprise. And they're the vivid orange ones.

I wish I could post photos. My gdaughter says I'm not compatible with something. The orange flowers are striking with the yellow. The friend who gave them to me called them Mexican sunflowers but I have no idea what the real name is.
Joan, they are about 10/12 ft tall.

Kathy those sunflowers sound great. Bees also forage sunflowers, which is beneficial.

I've been clearing blackberries again. The area that I cleared last winter and spring, did not grow back much. After clearing those areas I had scattered grass seeds and mowed the grass, which also meant mowing any returning blackberries. A there are occasional sprouts but they are gradually dying off. Still the amount to clear us daunting. If it's nice tomorrow, I might do more.

I Googled  lemon queen.sunflowers annual and this is what I found. It is an heirloom, open pollinator, annual, reseeds. 

Helianthus "Lemon Queen" is a perennial. I grew this one several years ago and had it removed when I designed my four axis meditation garden. I think I will put in another one. It was very pretty and attracted butterflies, if I remember correctly. It likes clay soil. I think I will sow some mullein seeds as companion plants. A nice yellow patch in my garden. 

Kathy, how tall are yours? 

These look perfect for my garden next year .
