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.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

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 (4 to 5 feet tall for me; they may be taller in other conditions) and start flowering at least a month earlier. The flowers of both the species and of ‘Torch’ attract a variety of butterflies and seed-eating birds. Full sun. Annual.

Harvested in September and October 2022. At least 15 seeds.
