Mexican Sunflower (Organic)

Tithonia rotundifolia.

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 our 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.


Direct sow 1/2” deep after danger of frost has passed (mid-May). Thin to 18” for largest blooms, decrease spacing for smaller plants. Plants prefer full sun and protection from wind.

Seed Saving

Collect seeds from seed heads that are fully dry. Shell by hand, winnow or screen to clean. Some cross-pollination may occur, isolate from varieties of the same species by 1/4 mile.
