Let's talk "Tithonias"?!?

Cincinnati (Anderson, OH(Zone 6a)

Or otherwise known as "Mexican Sunflowers"

Hi, again, everyone!

Not much new is blooming in our sunny border, but my Tithonia "The Torch" just started and it is quite something! So Orange and So Fun!

Anyway, I am surprised more isn't made of tithonias, and, since it is a new flower for me, I was hoping that some of you could show some pics and share some tips on growing them...

I am especially interested whether there are different varieties and colors, who is hybridizing them and which supplier stocks the best variety of seeds...

Thanks for any thoughts. t.

The swallowtails seem to love them, too....
