Are they jerusalem artichokes? I have some of these--fifteen feet high.

No, we have some of those out the front, but not that tall yet. These are something I've only seen here. They grow about six feet high, and supposedly they were used to give the privy some privacy back in the colonial days. Very invasive, so we have a lot of them. The living room is painted aubergine, so at this time of the year, there's a lovely contrast out that window.

(And I have to confess that 15 feet is an exaggeration. But easily 12 feet.)
