Helianthus Lemon Max
Undaunted® Lemon Max Perennial Sunflower
Details4-5 feet tall x 4-5 feet wide. Lemon Max is a sensational bloomer with an explosion of huge, clear yellow daisies in August. A big strapping plant to about 5 ft. in height and of equal girth, give ‘Lemon Max’ plenty of room to grow; it's especially well-suited to meadows and habitat gardens. While at home in any soil type, the plant loves clay. Birds will relish the seeds and the native bees are especially fond of these nectar-rich sunflowers. A garden hybrid discovered by Lauren Springer Ogden in her Fort Collins garden. A Plant Select winner. (Cutting propagated.)

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
