The American Giant Sunflower is a very tall summer annual.

These sunflower seeds are a high-yielding variety that provides large, multi-headed flowers with high oil content, making them an excellent choice for harvesting edible seeds.

If you are looking for the tallest and most prominent sunflower, this is the variety for you! American Giant Sunflower can reach up to 16 feet tall with 10-inch-wide blooms.

Because of their size, American Giant Sunflowers make for perfect competition flowers. Their ginormous blooms are supported on sturdy stalks with large leaves.
