I'm growing Tithonia "Goldfinger" for the first time this year.
They're from Park Seed and the catalog says that they're supposed to
get 4 feet tall. Mine are now only about a foot tall and they're
starting to bloom. Also, the bottom leaves turned yellow but otherwise
the plants look healthy.
I think they were stressed when I got them into the ground - a bit pot
bound and then we had a cold front move in for a week - so maybe that
made them start blooming early.
Will these plants continue to get taller even while blooming or should
I pinch off these initial blooms?
