Description for Tithonia Torch Red

These were a wonderful addition to the back of our garden this year. I have put them in arrangements with zinnias and bachelor buttons and they look great.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Mexican sunflower Red July to September 4.00 to 6.00 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

Choose a warm, sheltered location when growing plant. The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall. All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil. Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade Loamy soil, Sandy soil Medium 21C -29C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Tithonia Torch Red

    Before winter, add 4 to 6 inches of mulch, simply to delay the ground freeze and allow the roots to keep growing. Leave the mulch until spring once the last hard frost has passed.

Typical uses of Tithonia Torch Red

Special features: Tithonia are grown from seed. In colder, northern areas, you may want to start them indoors. In warmer climates, they can be started outdoors. Keep soil moist until seeds have sprouted.
