Great for a black thumb!

I have had little luck with most flowers, with this exception. Mine have grown as high as nine feet, and are always full of pollinators. Oh, do stake them...winds can bring them down.

This was our first to grow the Mexican Sunflower, and what a wonderful surprise. grow about 5-6 feet tall, HUMMERS and butterfly all day long and no fighting. Started in August and now early Oct. and still there. We will save the seeds and plant more next year. A plant will be a surprise for everyone.

Our daughter loved all the butterflies!

I planted a generous row of these seeds along the back of my raised beds (~10ft total) hoping a few would germinate- but all of them did! Grew to over 5' with heaps of blooms all season long. Tons of butterflies and other pollinators constantly visited, and the neighboring veggie beds looked great as a result.

Love these!! They're so beautiful. I don't know who's been enjoying them more me or the butterflies and hummingbirds! The color is striking and the foilage is gorgeous as well!

Mexican Sunflower Seeds

The seeds germinated and grew very well. These are large plants that make a great statement in the garden, and by far the most favorite flower to attract butterflies. The blooms last a long time and their Cole is a striking deep orange that contrasts beautifully with the leaves. I have planted them every year in the past six years. Love them!

Magnets for Monarchs and hummingbirds!

We loved these...never had so many Monarchs and Humming Birds before. Plant them near your deck and wait for the show. So exciting! We did have to tie them up, but small price to pay for such a show!
