5-7 feet tall 76-84 days to bloom Tithonia rotundifolia

HEIRLOOM If you love yellow, easy-to-grow flowers and have a thing for pollinators (we do, too!), Yellow Tithonia is a delight for us all. Native to Turtle Island (sometimes called North America), Tithonia are quite massive with dozens upon dozens of 3″ bright canary blooms borne on long stalks, though they’re not a fabulous cut flower since they bend so quite easily. Also called ‘Mexican Sunflower,’ Tithonia grow wide as well as tall, while most sunflowers simply grow tall. They’re truly a universe unto themselves with seeds so easy to ‘save’ (who saves who?!!) and we hope that you do! And our collective great-great-great grandchildren, too ~

And Friends! If your resident rodentia nibble all your sunflower sprouts relentlessly, grow Tithonia, whose seeds and sprouts are much less delectable to mammals of all sizes. Hooray!
