Q.Non Flowering Tithonia Diversifolia
I took a cutting of a tithonia diversifolia 2 years ago and it has grown VERY big and has been pruned down to 1.5 meters 3 times – but it has never had a flower. It has very dense foliage It is in full sun and on a well draining slope. How can I encourage flowers?
