Maximilian Sunflower




Helianthus maximiliani

A native prairie perennial, Maximilian Sunflowers bloom in late summer and fall, with masses of bright yellow flowers that hug the stalks. At 4’ to 8’ in height, the plants tower above other vegetation when in full bloom; a real stand-out in the landscape. Maximilian Sunflower is a nectar plant for bees and butterflies, and produces a heavy crop of seeds, making it valuable for birds and other wildlife. Full sun, dry to medium soil, tolerant of a range of soil conditions. This plant is rhizomatous and can form large colonies over time, so it may not be a good choice for a small landscape.
