The tallest sunflower she has ever seen


ENORMOUS: Reidston woman Bernice Mather stands near her giant six-month-old sunflower.

She is overwhelmed at the height of it.

The sunflower was planted about September after Mrs Mather received some seeds in the mail.

Since she planted the seeds, the sunflower has grown to about 2.9m –┬ájust over 9 feet tall.

Mrs Mather said she was shocked to see how big it had grown.

“I was quite surprised that something like this could grow that big and I’m excited by it really; I never knew they grew that much.”

The 86-year-old said it was the biggest sunflower she had ever seen.
