Contrary to common belief, this variety (var. maxima) is not distinguished by its large size but by the lack of red pigmentation in the throat. Note that the right hand plant does deviate somewhat from this definition (it thus approaches var. flava). The picture was made in NW Florida, where this variety is allegedly rare.
