Details

6' tall x 36" wide (cutting propagated). I found this unusually colored Maximilian's Sunflower one autumn afternoon while driving along a back road outside of Santa Fe, NM. With its primrose yellow flowers, it really stood out from all the other golden-flowered Sunflowers. 'Lemon Yellow' thrives in loam and clay and grows easily in hot, full sun locations, preferably against walls or fences where its large size can be appreciated.

Q & A

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).
