I tucked seeds of Tithonia here and there around the garden amongst things like Saliva leucantha, for fall bloom.
Now that some have managed to escape my notice and grow up to recognizable size, I realize that I've pulled up some of them thinking they were cockleburs or some other weed!

Esperanza, or Tecoma stans, and Pride of Barbados, Caesalpinia pulcherrima
Both seed grown, both in their second summer.
Cold kills them back to the ground in this climate,
but they come back readily.
The up side of awful August weather is that tropical plants thrive in heat and humidity.
