About This Plant

Sun. A prairie perennial up to 10 feet tall, with a heavy crop of sunflowers from summer to late autumn. The stems are unbranched, and the folded leaves distinctly long and thin — up to 10 inches at the base. Maximilian is a good choice for poor clay soils, but like any sunflower it’s not terribly picky.

Maintenance

None required, although it’s better looking with water than in drought. Seed thinly to provide adequate spacing.
