Does Maximilian sunflower bloom this early in TX?
We planted Maximilian sunflower (Helianthus maximiliani) back of border expecting it to bloom late summer/early fall. However, it bloomed for the first time last year in June and is doing the same this year. Does it normally bloom this early in Texas or possible we got a different sunflower variety by mistake? Looks and behaves like h. maximillani in most other respects. Thanks!
