Glade Thomas decided to measure his sunflower Wednesday because people in the Oregon Road neighborhood were starting to take notice.

The verdict? Fifteen feet and still growing. “I was expecting something in the range of 5 - 6 feet to add a little colour to my small garden but this is crazy,” Thomas said. “The guy that delivered the garden soil this spring said it was so good that I’d be able to grow rocks in it. Haven’t managed that yet but have grown some giant mutant sunflowers.”
