Mexican Sunflower Tithonia diversifolia

Bhindawas Lake Bird Sanctuary, Jhajjar, Haryana on 28 March 09.

I doubt it to be Tithonia diversifolia. See the link for it: http://floridagardener.com/pom/tithonia.htm

Thank you. Before posting the pic, I was searching the net for this spc. Tthe leaves on the net looked different from the one I saw. But, Isaac Kehimkar’s Common Indian Wild Flowers (page 68, serial No. 102) depicts it ditto. Comments from experts welcome.

Cosmos sp.??


It is different .  I will post the photos of Tithonia diversifolia in my garden  in due course.

Photos attached h/w.

Also sending a link to my article on this plant. https://epaper.starofmysore.com/epaper/edition/1432/star-of-mysore/page/8
