Maximilian sunflowers per se

with 30 comments

And here’s a closer look at some of the Maximilian sunflowers, Helianthus maximiliani, that I found on October 3 at an undeveloped property on E. 51st St. at Overbrook Dr. in Austin. Cheery things, aren’t they?

For more information about Maximilian sunflowers you can visit the website of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, and to see a state-clickable map of the many places where this species grows in the United States (and Canada) you can visit the USDA website.
