I started growing these 2 years ago. Probably one of the best butterfly plants available. The flocked in groups on mine. Can’t wait until the bloom this year. Too bad they are an annual. Great picture.

@philstalder I agree! Butterflies love these 😊 mine constantly reseed so I have them growing year round 😁

#tithonia I'm wondering if this was cross pollinated... it's the only plant producing this coloration. Gonna save seeds and plant more next spring ;)

It's lovely and much nicer than the other colours it comes in, will be interesting to see the colour they'll be next year.

The color change could be that it’s an older flower?

@janetandjim I think our cooler temps did it, all the flowers on this plant were that way 😉

@treefrog44 that would make sense. It’s a great color in the heat or the cool.
