A sunflower that grows flowers up the stalk.Yes, I've got many of these sunflowers planted in my yard but just this one has blooms growing all the way up the stem. Why is it doing this? Can you please help me to figure this out? It's driving me crazy not knowing? Please and thank you.

It depends upon the type of sunflower. It is normal. Enjoy it.

I love sunflowers (in their place) but the branching variety is especially nice as you can many times cut several flowers at one time from only one plant.

As to how this one seed happened to be in a package with 'plain' sunflower seeds is not really a mystery as growers many times have seeds of different varieties in bins next to each other.
I have purchased seed packages that had a seed or two of an entirely different plant. may not happen often but it does happen.

There are a large number of different types of sunflowers and quite a few branching types; the branching type is not usually found in stores (maybe could be found in Ace Hardware stores?) and I have always had to order online.
Some sites call these heirloom but many varieties are easy to find online.

Information:
"Branching sunflowers last weeks longer than single cut sunflowers because they keep sprouting new stems, even if they go uncut for a week.

They are a true 'cut & come again' cut flower. Branching sunflowers get so tall and literally look like trees with huge branches of sunflowers growing out of their sides (hence the name). I find that branching sunflowers produce stems that are shorter and skinnier, which makes them easier to work with in vase arrangements."

Two of my favorites are; Strawberry Blonde and Maximilian
