An open pollinated annual that readily reseeds itself, the Mexican sunflower is a spectacular member of the aster family with striking orange blooms on velvety green stems. Blooms resemble asters, daisies and zinnias. In cold hardiness zones 7 and below, seeds should be started indoors about 1 month before last expected frost. Heights can vary greatly, ranging from 3 ft to 7 ft depending on the growing environment, trimming, fertilization and time of year planted. The more flowers that you cut and/or dead-head, the bushier this heavy producer gets, so don't be afraid to cut bouquets for blooms that last through summer and into fall.
Germination: In cold hardiness zones 7 and colder, start seeds indoors 1 month before last expected frost, in warmer zones, plant seeds 1/4" deep and keep soild moist until germination. Germination occurs in 7-14 days. Once seedlings are 3" tall, thin to 3-4 ft apart.
