Product Details

These bright marigolds call in pollinators big and small. Flowers with a single row of petals make pollen access easy. Compact plants are tidy and full; beautiful at the front of a bed or tucked between vegetables. Plants grow and flower quickly with continuous blooms from spring until frost. French marigolds are edible, but with a very strong flavor similar to its pungent scent. Fairly drought tolerant once established.
