Torch Tithonia

Tithonia rotundifolia (120 days) Stately 6' plants with velvety dark green leaves bear scarlet-orange 4–5" blooms that attract hummingbirds and monarch butterflies. My fondness for this showy flower is shared by our customers. Also known as Mexican Sunflower. The blooms continue over a long season. 1951 AAS. Annual. Especially attractive to pollinators.
