We grew tithonia 3 years ago. We had no idea that it would get 5' tall and 3+ feet wide. The flowers were beautiful and it bloomed till frost. Did yours get big too?😊

It's almost as tall as I am. That makes it over 5ft. I did not know they got this big but it ended up in a good place. @gjones

Oh my goodness it’s GORGEOUS! If you keep the seed will they produce true to the parent?

@kimguy sorry, have to ask another possibly dumb question. Did you purchase the seed or gather from a friend’s plant? I’m all about gathering and trading seeds!

@cashclan. Sharon, there is no such thing as a dumb question,when you are trying to learn. I received the seeds from one of My generous gtag friends. My email is rkguysick@gmail.com
