Sunflowers pop up all over the place each summer, they become more abundant once the monsoon season begins here in northern Arizona. They are widely distributed throughout North America, known as Common, Roadside, or Prairie Sunflowers.
Here is the growth of a giant sunflower in my garden, it is over 8 feet tall. This is how it looked as it grew.
Here are some wild sunflowers in northern Arizona. I find honeybees on them often.
These wildflowers are a few I see in the forest area behind my home. There are many Ponderosa Pines as well as some mountain meadow areas.
