Tithonia rotundifolia

Butterfly Flowers

Blazing Torch Tithonia is also known as Mexican Sunflower. These spectacular tall Central American natives bloom non-stop from midsummer, with multitudes of star shaped, 3 to 4 inch red-orange flowers on densely branching velvety stems. Maturing 4 to 6 feet high, tithonia plants are brilliant welcoming beacons for both Monarch and Swallowtail butterflies. These dramatic garden flowers offer a non-fussy, carefree way to fill your garden with a bright fiesta of color.

In spring when all danger of frost is past and weather is warm and settled, sow seeds in well-worked soil in full sun. Space seeds 2 to 3 inches apart in rows 12 inches apart, cover 1/2 inch deep and gently firm soil. Keep soil evenly moist while awaiting germination in 7 to 10 days.


Four to five weeks before last frost date, sow seeds 1/2 inch deep and 1 inch apart in well drained seed starting mix. Keep warm and moist and provide a strong light source until seedlings are well established and ready to plant outdoors.


Space seedlings 10 to 12 inches apart when seedlings are large enough to handle to give these big plants room to mature.


Tithonia grows readily in ordinary garden soil in full sun. Use as a living hedge or garden screen, especially effective with brightly colored zinnias planted in front of them. Kept well watered and weeded when young, mature plants can handle hot and dry conditions well. Given plenty of space, vigorous Tithonia plants will need no staking.
