Additional Information

African Marigold

Tallest of the marigolds with largest leaves and flowers. Blooms are fully double and 3–4" across, resembling carnations. Plants make a bold highlight in large borders and crank out cuts.

Marigold

“We do not consider a flower garden complete without the good old-fashioned French and African marigolds.” –Breck’s, 1885. Good for bedding, for cuts, in planters or borders. Their warm colors cheer all summer long and positively blaze in the light of early autumn. Native to the Americas and said to have been sacred to the Aztecs. In 1939 Burpee’s Red and Gold hybrid was the first hybrid flower from seed offered commercially in the United States.

Culture: Fast and easy to grow from seed. Sow after soil has warmed, or inside in a warm (75–80°) spot, 3 weeks before setting out after danger of frost. Likes heat and full sun. Tolerant to drought. ~300 seeds/g unless otherwise noted.
