Growing Tithonia

Latin Name Pronunciation: tih-tho' nee-uh

Tithonia require full sun and grow well in average soil. Feed monthly with a bloom-boosting fertilizer (15-30-15). Give them some water in dry spells, and deadhead them regularly to keep the blooms coming.

Allow larger varieties plenty of room to grow. Provide them with a strong support at planting time, such as a tall, sturdy garden stake.
