Torch tithonia can be grown as a 4-6 ft. tall heat and drought tolerant screen that does not require staking. The spectacular 3-4 in. wide orange-red flowers are great for cutting and are among the favorite stops of butterflies - particularly the Monarch. The easy to grow plants begin to bloom in July or August and continue until frost.
Growing Torch Tithonia Seeds
Direct sow into prepared seed beds (barely cover) after all danger of frost, in groups of 3-4 seeds spaced 24 in. apart. Thin to the strongest plant. Can be started indoors in 2 in. containers.
