Thought is was giant sunflowercomments (2) October 16th, 2012 in gallery
This plant came up in our flower bed. We thought it was a giant sunflower but it did not bloom. I took a hand saw and cut it down. it had a 4 inch stalk and it was solid and smelt like milkweed. the plant was around 15 feet high. It has been about month since i cut it down and just noticed this weekend that it is growing back it is about 4 feet high already.
Can you tell me what the plant is? will it bloom? how high will it grow if I leave it?
