Tithonia rotundifolia (Mexican Sunflower) Wildflower Seeds
Followup to previous review with funny story
I came to this site to order another pound of mexican sunflower seeds. They have been a big hit wherever they have been planted. The buttefly scientist I work with is a doctoral student at FIU doing his thesis on planting butterfly gardens in schools and measuring the impact on the kids. I bought these seeds the first time on a whim because some northern based bloggers had mentioned them. We are in Miami.
Yesterday the butterfly scientist was here. I had given him a zip lock bag with a lot of mexican sunflower seeds out of my 1 pound package from Everwilde. He had them in his backpack to give out like Johnny Appleseed ,and forgot to remove them before flying abroad. When he returned, U S Customs discovered them and confiscated them. He told me he was so upset he had quite a todo with them about the good seeds, but to no avail. Here I am ordering him his own pound of seeds. Mine have been doing well. I scattered more in my yard. They need staking.
