Mexican Sunflower, Red Torch

Availability: In stock (16)

Approx. 35 seeds.

(Tithonia rotundifolia) (GOLDEN FLOWER OF THE AZTECS) Brilliant, red-orange, 2-3 inch flowers; an excellent butterfly plant. These bloom over a very long season, and the plants produce masses of blooms. The large 5 foot plants are very beautiful. I enjoyed these as I traveled along the roadsides in the high mountains in central Mexico.
