Mexican Sunflowers

17 years ago

One of my favorite new plants this year has been Mexican sunflowers. After ignoring them for a while at first, the butterflies discovered them and now visit them frequently. I love their size, color, and shape! The tall types I planted didn't germinate, but that's good, because the "short" types that are supposed to only grow to 3' did come up and are 5' and growing - I'd hate to see the tall types! Thanks, Mike, for recommending these beauties!

I've got some new duranta and Russian sage that the butterflies still haven't touched - maybe they'll eventually find them, too.

Anybody got any new flowers to report on?
