A clump-forming herbaceous perennial from North America which grows from slow spreading rhizomes. Native American Indians ate the tubers which are similar to Jerusalem Artichokes. The flowers are a valuable source of food for insects and birds enjoy feeding on the seed heads. Helianthus maximiliani has green hairy stems, long lance-shaped, hairy leaves and fragrant, yellow ‘daisy’ flowers borne all the way up the length of each stem.

It provides valuable late summer colour to the back or borders and provides essential food to a wide range of insects and birds.
