HOT AND HOTTER
Now this is what I call a hot flower. Tithonia rotundifolia x torch, a Mexican sunflower, has a color hot enough to match our sizzling summer days. I had forgotten that I threw out a packet of seeds earlier this summer. As I cleaned away some of the invasive Texas sunflowers there she was. Butterflies love this plant and it is not surprising as the flower is a beacon in a sea of green. But if you think this is hot look below.
