Tithonia Seeds - Red Torch

Mexican Sunflower, Flower of the Incas

Given full sun, ‘Red Torch’ fills out to become a butterfly magnet in the garden, flowering from July-October. When cut, everyone wants to know where you got the incredible flower of the Incas.” Height 1.2m (4’).

Rob's Thrillers - Fillers are the ‘can can’ girls of the arrangement, they look impressive but they are there to support the Thriller.  They also help ‘fill out’ the arrangement and make it look bigger and bolder.

Sow from mid February to the end of March on the surface of 7.5cm (3") pots in a propagator, 13-18°C (55-64°F), or in a clear plastic bag on a windowsill using a quality seed compost. The seeds must have daylight to start to grow. Seedlings appear in 7-21 days. Transplant them one per 9cm (3½") pot and grow on prior to planting after the last frosts at spacings of 45cm (18"). Make sure to dig in plenty of organic matter before planting out as Tithonia are greedy feeders.
 

Ideal for beds and borders. Suitable for cutting.
