I grow some sunflowers every year that exceed 12'  Variety called gray stripe. 
(Is there a taller variety?)  Mine are grown in a 1/2 acre patch dedicated to
winter bird seed.  Some heads  I harvest and some I leave on the plant.  I
tried a corn and sunflower mixed planting and the sunflowers completely chocked
out the corn as well as all the weeds.  Beautiful plants,  even in the winter
with a nice red cardinal perched on them.
