This flower is growing at my friends house & she doesn’t know what it is, only that its antique. It was at her grandmothers and when her home was sold she collected some of these flowers. They are about 5′ high at this point and in full sun. They were in full bloom Thanksgiving last year with blossoms all along the stem (note buds). Blossoms are about 4″ around. What are they & advice on taking some now (her home sold closing end of Aug so limited time frame to collect), and best habitat advice

    Compare to Ashy sunflower http://www.fs.fed.us/wildflowers/plant-of-the-week/images/ashysunflower/Helianthus_mollis_8C_lg.jpg
    The best time to plant a summer perennial is in the spring when they first begin to sprout.
    If they are moved during the growing season I would dig a clump. Cut the canes back and try to duplicate conditions where these are now growing as they do appear to be happy!
