Helianthus – Maximiliani
Our stock has been planted and we are amazed – it looks so harmless in a pot, but within a month it had grown to 6 feet, and ended the season at around 12 feet tall. We have researched and have learnt that if they are cut down by half in around June, they stay shorter and are easier to manage at a lower height. They have a lovely yellow semi double flower from very numerous side shoots all the way up the stem and last for months. Great in a vase for cut flowers, they are very tough and the slugs hate them with their “valcro” type leaves. An amazing giant for those of you who need a little Drama in the Garden.
