Still winding down to the tail-end of planning planting for spring.
I have plenty of extra Tithonia (Mexican sunflower) seeds. Anyone need any?
BTW, these are dried flowerheads full of seed so expect chaff. Just crumble them into your planting medium or beds.
These did EXTREMELY well for us last year. Not only were they a huge draw for insect pollinators, but the hummingbirds were crazy about them. They bloomed profusely until several killing frosts squashed them. The packets I got originally said they would get to about 6 feet tall. I grew them in a bed with 'Mammoth' sunflower and the Tithonia eclipsed them and grew to about 10 feet. A wind storm laid many of them down. I propped them back up and even the broken ones continued to flower. Hard to beat them. Can you guess that I'm now a fan?
