Product Details

The first gold-flowering Mexican Sunflower, Tithonia rotundifolia 'Yellow Torch' blazes high at 6’ tall, attracting butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds to its multitudinous, orange-yellow blooms from midsummer to hard frost. The towering, heat- and drought-tolerant plants are a delight at the back of the border, in cutting gardens, and along the sunny edges of a fence or property border.

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

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.
