Helianthus maximiliani


Perhaps my favorite perennial sunflower, up to 10 feet tall when happy, narrow linear foliage, and huge masses of small-ish clear yellow sunflower blooms arranged in spikes that look absolutely ravishing in the garden or in a (BIG) vase. Blooms heavily from late summer into fall. Native to most of the Eastern US, adaptedable and tough. Also a great wildlife plant as birds love the seed heads.Apparently you can eat the rhizomes the way you would those of the closely related Helianthus tuberosus. Zone 3
