World's tallest sunflower requires its own scaffolding
A gardener from Germany, Hans-Peter Schiffer, broke his own world record with a sunflower measuring 30 feet 1 inch. Before this, he held the record three other times: in 2009, 2012 and 2013.
The thing is so big, it needs its own scaffolding and it's even worthy of a world record, according to Guinness World Records.
"I'd give that a big, green thumbs up," ABC anchor Amy Robach said.
"Yes, it's like Jack and the beanstalk," George Stephanopoulos said.
The German gardener was a bit worried about his record after a thunderstorm brought in some large hail -- but the sunflower was spared.
Another plus -- sunflower seeds are pretty good for you, and we're sure this gardener has plenty.
