Dominic, Oh yes, I am familiar with Tithonia, Mexican sunflower. I had one for several years and it outgrew its space, so I replaced it with a rose. Hamelia patens is now to me ... I have never gardened in Florida. Thanks.

The first two butterflies are on our native fire bush Hamelia patens and the third plant is known by the common name of Mexican sunflower

(Tithonia.)

I have several plants of both over eight feet tall.

Tony, your photos of a grape tree and an octopus dazzle my imagination! 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 20, 2013 at 10:04pm
Dominic, many of your photos of butterflies sit on plants that look very much like an Asclepias, but I don't think it grows in Florida. I could be wrong.
Asclepias tuberosa L.
