Helianthus maximiliani seed

Maximilian sunflower is a perennial sunflower mainly found from Manitoba, in Canada south down to Texas but it is also found scattered throughout the tall grass prairie. The flowers run about three inches across but there are a lot of them. They start blooming as early as the

first week of September and continue for about 5 weeks. At the peak the top half of the plant is covered with these flowers for about three weeks making a very spectacular display. Naturally the bees love them and  butterflies like to stop by them to sip the nectar. Finally the goldfinches feast on the seeds from mid-October to mid-November.
