I have been buying seeds from Pinetree for years and years. Never disappointed. Highly recommend Pinetree for seeds and plants.
Please include in your description of Tithonia the fact that Monarch butterflies, for which I provide habitat, prefer that flower to any others I grow. The Zinnias I ordered are good on windy days because they are lower to the ground and easier to feed on.
I plant Tithonia in beds that border my street. People always stop and look at them...the size of the plants and the brilliant color of the blossoms attract bees, hummingbirds, Monarchs and passersby.
A single plant given plenty of room in a raised bed garden with some extra support from hog panel pieces, may grow to six plus feet in width and about five feet tall! Multi branched and Loaded with blooms from mid summer(mid south) till frost! I have grown them for years as a back drop for smaller plants and in unused corners around the property. Start these early indoors in pots if you live up north to get a good summertime jump, though they direct seed well here in late April or early May.
A wonder plant. It is large and strikingly beautiful. The butterflies, bees and hummingbirds were all attracted to it as soon as it bloomed. It was easy to grow also. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a big splash of color in their garden.
