    Ili, I responded to your question but it disappeared. I haven’t tried posting a siggy yet so I’m no help.   Maybe somebody else will know.  All I can suggest id do it like you do the pictures with a direct link option from PB?  That’s just a guess.

    Beautiful posts, everyone!  I enjoy seeing your butterflies, squirrels, insects, and flowers!  Nature is so diverse and so beautiful!

    Ga Girls Flowers, thanks for your kind offer and info! Now that I have checked into it, I have a couple of relatives nearby that I believe have some extra Mexican sunflower seeds …but I will definitely let you know if I end up needing any!  Do you winter-sow yours, or just wait and put them in the ground at planting time?

    Stelios, your Monarch is awesome!  I don’t know anything about butterfly ID, but have been told that mine is a swallowtail.

    BTW, it’s great meeting y’all.

    dsp    I planted them 5 years ago around the outside of the garden and blooms fall on the ground in the fall and every year I have plants that come up from that…Have never planted seeds since the first time but I do transplant them to other places…usually trying to get them around 3 sides of the garden but not to block the sun on the fourth side,.They do really well for me….I hear there are other colors besides orange and if this is true,,,, if anyone out there has other colors of the Mexican Sunflower I sure would love to have some seeds….I have Orange only. Thanks

    I missed the butterflies last summer. Hopefully growing more flowers they like will entice them to my yard. A corepsis( sp) moth that hatched last spring.

    They are not a sunflower…just a nickname that people in the south have given them.  Here in the north they are called Tithonia.  They are an annual and I understand that you have a source for seed for them.  In your zone you can direct sow them outdoors in the Spring.  They do get big, so give them plenty of room to grow!  Charlene
