Helianthus maximiliani, commonly known as Maximilian sunflower, is a species of sunflower native to North America. It's named after Prince Maximilian of Wied-Neuwied, a German explorer and naturalist who documented many North American plant species in the 19th century.

These sunflowers are known for their tall, slender stems and bright yellow flowers, which bloom in late summer or early fall. They can reach heights of up to 3 meters (10 feet) or more, making them an impressive addition to gardens or natural landscapes. Maximilian sunflowers are often cultivated for their ornamental value as well as for their ability to attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, Maximilian sunflowers are also valued for their ecological benefits. They provide food and habitat for various wildlife species and can help stabilize soil in areas prone to erosion. Additionally, their deep root systems make them drought-tolerant and capable of thriving in a variety of soil types.
