These flowers seem to grow here is the desert, but I will admit they grow taller here in the garden with regular watering. This one is about 8 feet tall. It is growing next to the pole beans and they have attached themselves to the sunflower for support.

Absolutely beautiful sun flowers. I noticed the little honey bee you captured on film too.

They look very similar to ones I have here. We used them to mask the outhouses. ... or at least, we USED TO do that. Now we place them near the back of the border garden.
