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.

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.

Very large and healthy looking, definitely not your average marigold need extra support because they are so tall. Bursting with buds.

I planted 2 pots of these. Same pots. Same care. They are sitting right next to each other. One pot did wonderfully, the other is home to 3 stunted plants. I find this very odd. At this point they have not yet bloomed. Will I buy them again? Maybe.

Many of the flowers turn black and then never blossom. Do not recommend.

Owner Response: Hi Nancy, It sounds like growing conditions could be more ideal. This isn't something that would happen naturally. You can find more about growing marigolds in the "Learn More" tab here on the product page and we are always here to help. Happy growing!

Purchased 2 packs, started them indoors (I'm in zone 5B); none have bloomed - it's mid-August.

Owner Response: Hi Janet, Thanks for sharing your experience. An overabundance of nitrogen or shady conditions can delay blooming. These should bloom in just a few months. I don't think you are saying you are growing these indoors, but if you are they likely need supplemental light to reach their full potential. Happy gardening!
