Notes:

This yellow sunflower bush blooms in the mid fall season. It can be cut back to the ground each winter and will grow again to the height of 10-15 feet each year. The yellow flower is about 4-5 inches across with about 6 buds per cane-like stem. The leaf is about 10 inches across. We live in the Orlando, Florida area.

    This appears to be a Bolivian (or Mexican) Sunflower. I have one that has not bloomed this year.

    that’s the plant. I am looking for information on pruning and have the plant still produce flowers that same season.

    You can prune it if you do so early in the season. If you wait too late, you will get the buds.
