Mexican Sunflower (Organic)

Tithonia rotundifolia. 75 days.

A great summer bloomer with bright orange flowers that attract butterflies. Thrives on neglect, turning into bushy shrubs by the end of summer. This strain lacks the dwarf nature and muted colors of the newer varieties, Torch and Aztec Sun. We prefer this larger Mexican Sunflower as we, and our pollinators, are always impressed by its length of bloom. Summer plant that loves the heat and will flower until frost.
