Product Details

At just 12" tall, these rich-colored gems are great for borders, rock gardens, or containers, and attract pollinators and other beneficial insects. The flavor and scent of the edible leaves and flowers is floral, citrus, and spicy. Signet marigolds have long been used to add flavor and color recipes. Infuse in oil and vinegar for a salad dressing, or chop and use as you would tarragon. Fairly drought tolerant. Deer and rabbit resistant.
