More Mexican Sunflower

__________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________

Gardening for wildlife

CREATING vibrant SHADES of vermilion


Known commonly as Mexican sunflower or red sunflower (Tithonia roundifolia) attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. 









































































About four foot tall and branching, the Tithonia fancies a good trimming after the blooms fade. If I do this once a week there is a continual show of scarlet vermilion flowers. The Tithonia prefers full sun and tolerates dry conditions.
