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 dissipate 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.

85 days to maturity

5 of 5 Try nine feet! September 23, 2019
Reviewer: Jo Miller from Elka Park, New York (catskills)  
Absolutely stunning multi-branched show-stopper right in the center of my garden. Six feet? Mine is nine feet tall and 3-4 feet wide! If there were a photo upload feature on the reviews I'd share pics of the blooms covered with monarch butterflies. Reaches its blooming peak in September when other flowers are fading. If you live in a windy area, stake with a metal U-post, because it's heartbreaking if the wind knocks it down.

I have these potted and placed out near my raised beds.
I planted them late so they are just flowering now.

5 of 5 Beautiful! January 8, 2019
Reviewer: Suzy Farrell from Rochester, NY United States  
We were looking for something to replace the traditionally sunflowers that had become a seasonal meal for our squirrel neighbors. After seeing Petra’s video, I was convinced this would do the trick...and it did! An added bonus was all the butterflies it attracted. They lasted until the very cold.
