Red Sunflower with Bee

I attended a party recently where someone brought about a dozen budded sunflowers to share.  Of course I took one home to plant in my garden.  What a cool surprise when it bloomed red-orange.  The bees like it a lot, also.  This is not near as tall as a yellow sunflower with a giant head full of seeds that grows 8 to 10 feet tall.  The flower pictured above is about 3 feet (one meter) high, at most.
