Organic Mexican Sunflower (Torch Tithonia) HEIRLOOM We love Mexican sunflowers almost as much as the hummingbirds and Monarch butterflies! Each red-orange 3 inch bloom is borne on a long, strong stalk perfect for cutting. Classic sunflowers have one huge, main blossom on top with a dozen or so smaller secondaries that generally dissapate before frost; Mexican sunflowers bear dozens upon dozens of equal size flowers with increasing abundance all the way to frost. The 5 to 6 foot plants grow several feet wide and their silver-green velvet leaves are deeply serrate and ornamental, as well.

Our seed originally came from Siskiyou Seeds in Williams, Oregon where Petra spent a year apprenticing with our friend and mentor Don Tipping.

These are usually one of my favorites. I love that they bloom all summer right through frost. This year the squirrels and rabbits got most of them for me though. :(
