Helianthus maximiliana ‘Santa Fe’
at Digging Dog

Helianthus

Sunflower

The sunflower was once an emblem of the Sun God of the Incas. This well-loved genus is 150 species strong and includes not only sprightly garden plants but commercially important food and oil crops.

Our easy-to-grow selections tolerate a wide range of garden soils, attract bees, and make great cut flowers.

Helianthus maximiliana ‘Santa Fe’ full sun

As summer fades into fall, this native New Mexican sunflower bursts into abundant bloom with gorgeous large, golden yellow flowers. Dark green, long and narrow pointed leaves create an eye catching colonnade several months before the top half of each red-tinged, sturdy stem gives way to the closely arranged, fulgent daisies.

Putting on one of the latest and unequivocally finest autumn displays, regal ‘Santa Fe’ stands in sharp relief to the violet-hued Aconitums in our border.

Blooms September–October.

Size: 6'–8' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 4.
