"I had a giant sunflower in my backyard, and I let it stay until it was way past the end of the flower's life. When I finally got around to pulling the 9-foot stalk out of the ground, it was perfectly dry and sturdy, not bendy at all. I cut it into three 3 foot lengths, and they were perfect for macrame wall hangings - strong, straight, but very lightweight. I had never used one before!"
