Maximilian Sunflower

Maximilian Sunflower Wine Details

Description: During the Fall, the creek sides of the Hill Country are alive with the majestic Maximilian Sunflower. Often a towering six feet in height, this perennial has brilliant yellow flowers running the full length of the stem - unquestionably the predominant slower of the Fall season. Growing in colonies or groupings, they have several unbranched upright stems covered with short rough hairs. In drier areas, the Maximilian may reach only one foot in height. The hairy lanceolate shaped leaves alternate and vary from 2” - 10” in length. The composite flower head, 2” - 3” wide are bright yellow with a yellow disk.
