Lemon Drop French Marigold Seeds Reviews
Huge marigold plants
4 out of 5 stars Sep 3, 2019
I seeded Lemon Drops in my full-sun garden as well as in a container on a balcony with afternoon sun. In the container they grew 4 feet tall on long stems and produced abundant large flowers. In the garden they took a while to grow but have become a dense hedge of plants nearly 3 feet tall. The color of the flowers varies from golden to bright yellow. I like the variety but would not describe them as "compact"

I have been looking for the old fashion Lemon Drop Marigolds for several years at every garden center I came across. I finally found them here and EVERY single seed germinated! They all bloomed and lasted until the hard frost took everything...

LOVE this marigold. Yields relatively large, unceasingly bright, cheerful flowers. The best yellow marigold I have grown.

I love these little guys - I planted them a bit too early, and they struggled, but now they are beautiful with the fall weather coming on.

These were COVERED in bright yellow blooms and really stand out in the garden and attract pollinators. I love the shorter height.
