Beautiful. I grow the giant yellow version here... Kell, I am experiencing the same problem here that is happening on 'Plant Files'. I click on any of the smaller images and get a blank screen?

Love that Tithonia! We grew it in the garden of a former home and it went past 6' tall.

David, I hope your problem is fixed by now. I have not experienced it. I checked the Dave's Garden Discussion Forum and I do not see any other complaints. If it persists post on the Dave's Garden Discussion Forum about it or dmail an admin like Terry. Hope it is easily solved.
