 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!  Today's flower is one that has been in bloom recently, I took this photo last week with my phone.  This is a Maximillian Sunflower.  They usually bloom August and September.  They can grow to 9 feet tall!  It's a nutritious flower for livestock.  It was named for Prince Maximillian Alexander Philip Von Wied-Neuweid, a German botanist who discovered it while traveling in North America in the 1800s.


  1. Nice densely flowering sunflower. 9' tall is quite tall!!
