Helianthus Maximilliani: Maximilian sunflowers are yellow flowered perennials that provide food and shelter for a wide variety of wildlife. Butterflies enjoy the nectar from the masses of late summer blooms that form a spiral around the stalk. Birds, deer and other wildlife enjoy the seeds produced in the fall. Prefers low moist areas, waste areas, roadsides, and rocky prairies, often in sandy soils. Makes a neat blooming fence for the back of the border. Plants will often flower the first year.
