Tulip seeds and Yellow Tithonia?'s

ladyrose65November 13, 2012

I got tulip seeds from a trade from aquawise. I plan to WS, how long does it take to grow to maturity? What should I expect? Do they handle transplanting well?

Who has grown the Yellow Tithonia are they butterfly magnets like there orange parents? Is the plant just as vigorous grower as the orange?

I don't know about Tithonia but Tulips are not often grown from seed except by breeders. Do you know if these tulip seeds are from hybrids or from species? If they are from hybrids there is no way of knowing what the resultant seedlings will be like. Species will come true from seed.
It could be several years before a seed sown tulip will produce a flower.
