Tithonia rotundifolia ‘Torch’ (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 outdoor after your last frost date. Either way, barely cover the seeds, as they benefit from light during sprouting.

Mexican sunflower produces bushy plants with large, single, clear orange, daisy-form flowers from mid- or late summer to frost. While the seeds I grow of the straight species (Tithonia rotundifolia) easily get taller than 6 feet, these ‘Torch’ seeds typically produce more compact plants (around 4 feet tall for me; they may vary a bit in other conditions). 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.
