Tithonia - Torch

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

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.

Butterfly and bee magnet

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.

Seeds and plants from Pinetree

I have been buying seeds from Pinetree for years and years. Never disappointed. Highly recommend Pinetree for seeds and plants.

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.

Wonderful color

I plant Tithonia in beds that border my street. People always stop and look at them...the size of the plants and the brilliant color of the blossoms attract bees, hummingbirds, Monarchs and passersby.
