Tithonia - Torch

8 reviews
Also called Mexican sunflower. Years ago, I planted a wildflower mix, and the planting was soon dominated by 4 foot tall plants with single, reddish orange flowers. I never was able to figure out what the flower was until I happened upon a similar planting at the Olbrich Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. It was tithonia. The tall plants have an attractive, soft green foliage with a fairly large number of bright 4"-5" blooms. I find this very striking, especially as a backdrop plant to other vivid colored annuals like zinnias and calendula. 15 seeds ?G15-21

I recommend this product
I grew tithonia a couple years ago and it grew to be 7 feet high with several large branches and lots of lovely orange flowers that bees and birds loved. I planted again this year and they are growing well.

I always enjoy your catalog and was pleased to see so many organically grown seeds. I also appreciate that several new and unusual seeds are offered. I've planted papalo this year and it has a very unique flavor, unlike any Mexican green I've eaten.

Delightful!

Oh my goodness these are gorgeous! The butterflies and hummingbirds LOVE them! And they add such a nice pop of color and bloom all summer long.

These seeds have amazing germination rates, and the plants are enormous with sufficient water. Mine were well over 7 feet tall. We had unbelievable amounts of assorted insects, including monarchs.

Monarch butterfly food.

Please include in your description of Tithonia the fact that Monarch butterflies, for which I provide habitat, prefer that flower to any others I grow. The Zinnias I ordered are good on windy days because they are lower to the ground and easier to feed on.
