Can You Identify This Plant? Bullwinkle might Know.

This native American plant can boast that one of its kind was recorded as growing 30 feet 1 inch.

What we consider its flower are really thousands of individual flowers surrounded by petals called ray florets.

This plant is currently around 3 feet tall.  I expect it to reach heights of 6 to 7 feet.

During the opening of the show, Bullwinkle and Rocky popped up from the soil in front of this plant.

Do you know what it is?




Thanks to mentalfloss.com for some of these factoids.

OH, I think I figured it out. It's a sunflower, isn't it?
