    Comments about Helianthus maximiliana Santa Fe:

    I live near Denver, CO where we have temperature extremes in both summer and winter. Once established, this plant takes minimal care. It holds up well through hot, dry summers and in a milder summer with more rain and less heat, absolutely thrives. It does grow very tall and can get top heavy once it starts to bloom so I have found that it does better against a wall, fence or in a place protected by strong winds. It also blooms much better if it gets a full day of sun. It doesn't bloom until late summer but the display is absolutely amazing and worth the wait.
