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.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
