Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:

Get the drama, height, and color of Sunflowers year after year with Maximilian. The large, sturdy green stems produce gorgeous yellow blooms in summer through fall. Native to prairies, this sunflower is actually great food for livestock and produces a large crop of seeds each year, making it attractive to other wildlife. Maximilian is named after Prince Maximilian of Germany (1782-1867).
