DescriptionSpread summertime cheer with a multitude of sunny blooms! Strong stems, reaching up to a towering 7' tall, are covered in tons of bright yellow, 2–3" sunflowers. Maximillian is an easy-going addition to sun-soaked landscapes—it grows quickly and naturalizes well, thriving in heat, drought and poor soil conditions.
