Additional Information

French Marigold

Small bushy plants with flowers approximately 2" across in a wide range of colors including yellows, oranges, rich reds, mahogany and bicolors. Bloom styles, depending on the cultivar, can be single, crested, semi-double or fully double. Outstanding edging plants bloom early summer till frost and stand well in all weather.

Marigold

Annual. “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; still play a vital role in celebrations of Día de los Muertos. 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. ~280 seeds/g unless otherwise noted.

Flowers

All flowers are open-pollinated except where noted.
