Does Tithonia saved seed come true?
I've grown Tithonia for two years and I love it for late season color and nectar. I had a Monarch on it last night, so I checked for dry seed heads. I now have a healthy handful of seeds that I'll sow in the spring for fun. But, if I knew ahead of time that they may not come back the same, I'd buy some seeds so I'm guaranteed to have some like the originals. It's really too bad that they take so long to get going. There are about 20 new buds coming on two plants, but I expect a frost any day. I checked the Data Base, but no info there, yet. Maybe I'll fill in that gap next year.
