Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani ) is in full flower now!

Maximilian Sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani ) is in full flower now across our area.

Maximilian Sunflower makes a bright colorful addition to your garden space from late summer into early fall. 

Be sure to give it plenty of space as it spreads by means of an underground rhizome. Maximilian Sunflower can reach 4’ – 5’ tall and many feet in width.

This plant can be propagated from seed or by digging up the rhizomes during the dormant season. In addition, the rhizomes are edible similar to the to the Jerusalem artichoke.

Trees That Please Nursery carries both annual and perennial flowering plants as well as shade trees, fruit trees, shrubs, and cacti that are suitable for our New Mexico climate.

The cooler days of fall are an excellent time to plant as water stress is reduced.
