Certified Organic Seeds - 500 per pack by Hudson Valley Seed Co. 

Effusive and crowd-pleasing red-orange blooms.

A native of Mexico, Torch Tithonia grows at a slow burn until midsummer heat triggers an explosion of blooms that blaze into fall. The vibrant red-orange flowers attract hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.

A relative of zinnias and sunflowers, this striking plant resembles both. At heights of up to 6 feet, you will understand why it is commonly called "Mexican Sunflower," but once it blooms, you will see the close relation to zinnias. 

Grow this tall, showy annual in back of borders or in a mass planting for the most fiery effect.

Growing Instructions


Start seeds indoors in a warm spot, about 75-80 degrees, 4-6 weeks before last frost date. Seedlings are slower to start than zinnias or sunflowers, so have a bit of patience if you have not planted them before. They take off quickly once they get going! Transplant out after threat of frost has passed.

Torch Tithonia prefers full sun and well-drained soil, but tolerates partial shade. This large plant resembles sunflower and zinnia plants some-what, but you will find that the leaves are quite interesting and have a slightly fuzzy texture. Reached heights up to 6 feet and is covered in fiery-orange zinnia-like blossoms by mid-summer.
