Date planted: Nov 2017
Remarks:  This is the second generation of Mexican Sunflower at or around our home. It did flower in the summer of 2018 but not too many. Due to over growth against shallow roots, it did slant on rainy winds, so was brutally pruned to reduce the weight, once in June 2018 and then again pruned by BESCOM folks against touching the sheathed wires above. Hope it will have generous flower bloom by this Nov.  This plant also has a lemon plant inside it, the lemon plant originally planted here was not doing that well, this plant overtook it in no time, and is likely kill it with slow death, may be I will take the lemon plant upstairs into a drum soon(if I can disentangle its roots from the sunflower plant roots, without harming any of the both)
