Talya Sunny, also known as Sanvitalia speciosa or Creeping Zinnia, is a tender perennial flowering plant native to Mexico and the southern United States. Danziger developed the Talya series for large prolific flowers and success in full or partial sun. This plant offers a semi-trailing mounded habit of 6-8" tall and 12-14" wide, with green foliage and tan-eyed yellow flowers. Perennial in zone 9-11, Talya Sunny attracts butterflies to the landscape from spring through fall as an annual. This plant is heat and drought-tolerant, resists deer, and flourishes in hanging baskets, landscape borders, and mixed containers with little more than occasional water.
