(Tithonia rotundifolia) (GOLDEN FLOWER OF THE AZTECS) Brilliant red-orange 2- 3-inch flowers; an excellent butterfly plant. These bloom over a very long season, and the plants produce masses of blooms. The large 5-foot plants are very beautiful. Common along roadsides in the high mountains of central Mexico.

What are the pros? Loved by bees and butterflies

What are the cons? None

Review:

I bought these on a whim and am so glad I did! I live in zone 5A and direct sowed these on May 1st. About a 7-10 days later, these boys were popping up in spades. I had no idea they would grow to be so freaking huge- I thought they were like conventional sunflowers- tall and skinny. But, no. A single plant is easily 3 to 4 feet in diameter and 10 feet tall- with dozen and dozens of bright red flowers all over them. They bloom continuously from July to frost (unlike conventional sunflowers that are usually one and done), and basically every pollinator in my area is obsessed with them. Fat carpenter bees, mason bees, all kinds of butterflies, even hummingbirds fought major battles over these plants. They had no pest and no problems.

Review:

These came up really well last summer and grew to over eight feet! The butterflies and hummingbirds dipped in and out of them all summer long. I just deadheaded the spent flowers, and they keep coming on. They also do well as cut flowers in bouquets, I will be planting these, again, this year!

What are the pros? low maint, brilliant blooms

What are the cons? more blooms

Review:

I can't believe how tall and large these plants get...9 feet tall! One of the most beautiful blooms I have ever seen. I wish the plant produced more blooms per plant but otherwise this is a wonderful annual. Couple with my giant zinnias at 8 feet tall and I have a wall of color protecting my house and front yard.

Review:

We grow lots of sunflowers in our North Louisiana garden. These are a new favorite. Nothing seems to bother them...cold, heat, drought, bugs, etc. Eight feet tall by end of July, with dozens of blooms. Ten or so planted close together make a big attractive bush. Agree with others that butterflies, bees and humming birds love them. Two or three in a wine bottle makes a great bouquet.

Review:

One of the best additions to our middle school garden. Plants grew to six feet, bushy and loaded with continuous blooms. Still going strong and lush into October. Very sturdy plant. Kids love to pick these for bouquets in the classroom.
