Tithonia

Tithonia is also known as “Mexican Sunflower.”

This is a fun flower to photograph. Its color is vivid. The blooms appear on gracefully curved stems. It attracts a variety of pollinators. It does make a few seeds for the birds, but not in the same quantity as regular sunflowers.

This is my first bloom of tithonia this year.
