Until Fiesta del Sol came along, we didn’t really believe it was possible to get more blooms per plant on super-floriferous Mexican Sunflowers. This AAS-winning dwarf has proved us wrong! Instead of adding blooms (though it may have done a little of that, too!), Fiesta del Sol simply is a smaller plant, so the blooms arise even more thickly amid handsome dark green foliage!
Masses of 2- to 3-inch deep orange blooms arise all summer long on this workhorse. As they fade, they are quickly replaced by new blooms, so the plant always looks neat and freshly-blooming!
This plant is impervious to heat, humidity, drought, and even deer — just about every nuisance of the summer garden you can imagine! A great choice for the South, where the humidity envelops many other plants, Fiesta del Sol is a butterfly magnet wherever it grows. Plant this sun-lover in the blazing-hot garden and enjoy the long summer show!
