Availability: In Stock
It took 21 years and thousands of dollars to develop a white marigold that made its debut in 1975. By growing 'Kilimanjaro White', you become a part of the horticultural history and determination that led this seed to your very garden. An awe-inspiring color in the world of marigolds, these 2½" vanilla-white blossoms make a fabulous contrast in any garden and cut-flower arrangement. They have a lovely, sweet scent; different from other marigolds. Marigolds attract butterflies and are fairly drought tolerant.

Planted direct into the garden with the Crackerjack African Marigold Seeds. All Crackerjack germinated and flowered perfectly. The White only germinated about 5 plants.... Stunted in size compared to Crackerjack. Provides less White flowers per plant than Crackerjack. Would re-order maybe.
Owner Response: Hi Brett, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We apologize for the low germination rate that you are experiencing. A customer service agent will be with you soon about the issue.

Great germination rate.

About four weeks in now and I'm seeing about 80% germination at least. Seedlings are growing very strong and tall, excited for them to bloom. Using as a pest guard but wanted a variety with more height and drama. Would repurchase. This is my twentieth sowing with botanical interest seeds. All have yielded great results.
