Mexican Torch sunflower
Tithonia rotundifolia. A truly impressive quick growing central American annual (also known as Golden Flower of the Aztecs) that can grow up to 6 feet tall and almost as wide, the Mexican Torch provides a long, steady show of fireworks over summer and fall. With velvety dark green leaves and impossibly flame-bright red-orange flowers, it’s easy to see how it got its name. Highly attractive to pollinators including Monarchs and other butterflies as well as hummingbirds. 85-90 days.
