Mexican sunflower is a great pollinator plant and one of the best plants for attracting butterflies, the monarchs love it for the abundant pollen. Brilliant red orange flower heads 3 1/2” across are abundant and grow on 4-5ʻ plants. Foliage has a gangly habit, so interplant with other flowers or in groups for a spectacular border of color.
Open Pollinated - 30 seeds/pkt.
Start in pots and transplant, as seedlings grow slowly and are easy to get lost in the garden.
Maturity: 80 days
