(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? Low maintenance, very showy

What are the cons? Late to have full color

Review:

These were a wonderful addition to the back of our garden this year. I have put them in arrangements with zinnias and bachelor buttons and they look great. These are going in my "tried and true" category and I have recommended them to many friends! Gorgeous! The only slight downfall is that there is a time when they are "adolescent" sunflowers and they look very awkward- almost like weeds. But one by one the brilliant orange came out and our neighbors have complimented us numerous times!

What are the pros? Very healthy, many blooms!

What are the cons? None!

Review:

Not an expert grower here, but I planted 2 varieties of sunflower this year (Titan & Red torch). The titans look like a messy disaster right now, but the Mexican sunflowers are the biggest workhorse in my garden this year for drawing pollinators as well as being the healthiest plants in the garden! I'm completely blown away by these silky soft beauties! All I did was dig a trench & plant the seeds (both varieties) & a small amount of wood mulch around them & they just took off once they sprouted. They weren't babied with fertiliser (only a tiny amount of egg shells) & I didn't water them at all. (They shrugged off all the extra rain this year from El Nino that waterlogged most of my other plants.) I'll be growing these every year from now on!

What are the pros? Bright Color

What are the cons? Wish more blooms

Review:

These were a fun surprise... planted and kind of forgot I had planted them since it was in a weird location... came back from a long trip and so fun to see this TALL orange bush! I wish the plant produced more blooms per plant... but that's my only "complaint"... as others have mentioned the butterflies LOVE them!!

What are the pros? Blooms are gorgeous

What are the cons? Hard to germinate

Review:

We live in zone 6b, and for whatever reason, we struggled to get a lot of the seeds to germinate. We planted them in two different raised beds in early May, and I think about half of the seeds germinated. The plants bloomed in late July, and the blooms are numerous and a stunning orange color. The foliage is lush and lovely too. We planted them with "Teddy bear" sunflowers nearby, and the slugs, Japanese beetles, and other pests have been really attracted to the Teddy bear sunflowers, but they have largely left these sunflowers alone. I will definitely plant these again, but I will space them out a little more than I did this year, and more than I would other sunflower varieties because the foliage is so voluminous.

I live in zone 10a--South Florida--and with regular irrigation (I put them in with vegetables) these will bloom year round. Awesome butterfly attractor.
