Product Details

Bushy, short, rock-garden marigolds, these are, indeed "little gems" for your garden with profuse blooms on dense mounds of lacy, scented foliage. Petite, single, lemon and tangerine blossoms not only have delicious names, they are edible! Infuse in oil and vinegar for a salad dressing, or chop and use as you would tarragon. A delightful accent for beds, patio containers, and salads!
