Tithonia rotundifolia (Mexican Sunflower) [15 Seeds]


Germination Information: Mexican sunflower generally grows best from seed sown directly in the garden in late spring, but if you wish, you could try sowing indoors in a warm (70°F) spot in early to mid-spring and transplanting the seedlings outdoors after your last frost date. Either way, barely cover the seeds, as they benefit from light during sprouting.

Mexican sunflower (Tithonia rotundifolia) produces big, bushy plants easily reaching 6  to 8 feet tall, with large, single, clear orange, daisy-form flowers from mid- or late summer to frost. It looks terrific with other tall annuals, like ‘Hopi Red Dye’ amaranth (Amaranthus) and ‘Carmencita’ castor bean (Ricinus communis). If you’d like to grow Mexican sunflower but would prefer plants that are likely to be shorter, I also offer seeds of ‘Torch’. The flowers of the species and of ‘Torch’ attract a variety of butterflies and seed-eating birds. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in September and October 2020. At least 15 seeds.
