Maximilian Sunflower is a tall (3-8 feet) perennial sunflower with yellow flowers up to 3 inches across. This plant’s tubers were an important food source for western tribes of Native Americans. Found from southern Canada south to North Carolina, Kentucky, and Texas, this plant tolerates full to partial sun, dry to moderate moisture, and a wide range of soils. It blooms from late August to October and flowers attract honey bees and wild bees. Serves as an important wildlife plant – deer forage on leaves and birds eat the seeds.

Water soak the seeds in water overnight to soften the shell.
