Butterflies in November
Barbara Anuzis from NC wrote on February 04, 2022

The Fiesta del Sol has been a major butterfly attractant, especially later in the season. November 2020, there were two Monarchs, two Painted Ladies, a Gulf Fritillary, a Cloudless Sulphur, and a Red-Spotted Admiral all taking nectar at the same time. [but my camera was too far away to fetch from inside the house :(]. Much sturdier than Torch, but with all the nectar power. Will always be included in my garden.

No 1 for butterflies and bumbles

This is supposed to be the "shorter" tithonia but mine still reach nearly 6 feet. I wish they matured earlier, but they sure take their time. However, I have pictures of 3 pollinators on one blossom. While flowers last only a day at peak, I snip them off immediately, which will keep them blooming nearly until frost (So. WI). I only grew about 5 plants and gave away all the other seeds. If you have area with full all day sun, these are a must for any garden designed for pollinators.

Major Feature in back yard

These seeds were down in a large round galvanized horse trough. They have grown to be well over everyone’s head. Amazing display that attracts hummingbirds and many different butterflies. I have taken some great pictures due to these flowers.
