Tithonia, Torch

Tithonia rotundifolia


Full Sun

Blooms July to Frost

4’-6’ Tall

Plant 12”-24” apart


Tithonia, also known as Mexican Sunflower, is very attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies, and beneficial insects like the minute pirate bug. The large 4”-5” blooms are borne on a stately plant with velvety leaves. Loves hot dry sites, but tolerates a range of soils as long as there is good drainage. Plants can make a quick growing summer hedge, and the flowers are good for cutting. Deadhead to increase flower production.
