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

What are the pros? Beautiful flowers, huge plants

What are the cons? What's not to like?

Review:

I put in seeds which didn't germinate due to cold. Re-sowed and they all germinated. I had to thin out and right now I have two over 7 foot tall bushes covered in flowers. My goodness, they are just pumping out the flowers!! I guess this will continue until frost, so they have possibly 2 more months. They are fabulous monsters providing nectar in later summer. They started blooming in middle of July. The bumblebees and Swallowtail and Monarch butterflies are having a wonderful time. These are the silkiest smooth plants to touch. They will be a regular in my 'jungle' pollinator garden from now on.

Review:

Planted these with 2 other Sunflower varieties this year. Had several neighbors ask when they were developing if they were weeds but then the blooms came and everyone has enjoyed them. The bees and butterflies can't get enough and the bright orange flowers are plentiful. They have been blooming since late June and we are approaching September. No signs of them slowing down. No maintenance in the south with our periodic rain storms. Fully intend to plant them again next year. Got much taller than I thought they would (just as tall as my Titan Sunflower this year!)

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!

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!

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!!
