Notes:

Volunteer in my echinacea patch last summer. Extremely tall. Ultimately got to 8 feet or so. Yellow, daisy-like petals with yellow-green center. Long, oval leaves with a bit of “hairiness” to them. Thinking this may be a member of the sunflower/helianthus genus … but which one?

    Laura735, it looks like “tall sunflower” is the winner. Thanks for your help!

    These involucres look similar to a few Helianthus species i.e. Maimilian sunflower, tall sunflower, etc… but not having other clues to narrow down. I’m not confidant enough to speculate. Copy & paste the included link below for one in the group H. giganteus (tall sun flower). Best wishes!
