Maximilian’s Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani) starter plant DORMANT. This is a tall (up to 7 ft) showy perennial sunflower that gets covered with flowers. Likes med/ moist to med/ dry average soils. Attracts a variety of bees, moths, butterflies and birds. Can spread so be careful of location.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed. If kept on, I suggest ripping the sides of the pot for easier root penetration.
