(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? Wonderful addition to my yard.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew these for the first time this year and was so delighted with the growth and prolific flowering. These are every bit as beautiful as the picture depicts. The butterflies have been at the flowers since they have bloomed and they are the gathering place for the yellow finches. I started the seeds in my green house in early spring and set them out when the weather permitted. All survived so I would say that they are very easy to grow. Next year I'll do the same but I'll also direct sew into the ground.

What are the pros? Pollinator, cut flowers

Review:

This is such a lovely flower! I has been a great growing season here in northern Virginia, but I'm blown away by these. They took a bit to get going, but then they just exploded. They are about 6 feet tall, with bunch of blooms branching off in various directions. I had no idea they were such prolific bloomers! The stems are silky soft, and I've cut newer blooms and they've kept in a vase for a week at least. The butterflies in my area love the blossoms and I've seen multiple feeding on the many blooms at once.

What are the pros? Gorgeous and drought resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

These are so beautiful and easy to grow. They bloomed many times throughout the summer and into the fall and the pollinators loved them. I live in the Chihuahuan Desert and these plants enjoyed lots of sun and didn't require too much watering. Mine grew to about 4' tall. Planting many more throughout the yard and garden this year.

What are the pros? Flowers are beautiful

What are the cons? too big for spot planted

Review:

I will plan their planting spot better next year, they were very vigorous! and got up to 8-10 feet tall!! They did suffer some damage from heavy rains & hail, but even with bent stems still kept on flowering. Had 6 Monarch butterflies dancing over the flowers all summer, and 4 kinds of bees - 2 tiny ones, honey and big fuzzy bubbles. I will plant them again and give them some support. Saved seeds and shared with some friends, the silly squirrels liked eating the prickly seed pods. When the frost takes them, they dry out and are fairly easy to break up to clean up the garden before winter, just watch out for the prickly seed pods.
