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!

I grow this little beauties not only for their culinary uses, but for far more important things, attracting pollinators that attract beneficial wasps in my garden! Love their dainty flowers, their ferny and fragrant foliage!

Marigolds are good

Had good luck with these. Planted them in not the best of soil and didn't water them as often as I should have. They still produced well and are very attractive.

I am extremely disappointed in these seeds. Not one germination from any of the seeds. I even tried two different plantings. Nothing!!!!!

I'm not a big fan of marigolds, but this looks nothing like the typical marigold. It's super dainty and smells heavenly. I really enjoyed it in my summer garden and just collected a bunch of seeds! You should definitely grow these!

Mass planted with Thumbelina Zinnia. Prettiest little flower garden I ever had.

Sweet accents

5 out of 5 stars Oct 7, 2020
This was my first year planting these. I paired them with large green citronella (geranium) in hanging baskets. Low maintenance, tolerates full sun and little water--and the little sprigs of color looked great (and different) with the bold greenery of the citronella. Sweetest little accent colors.

Look and smell amazing!

I bought these seeds along with a few other marigold varieties, but these are by far my favorite. The lacy, bright green foliage is beautiful all on it's own and the flowers are lovely as well. But what really makes them stand out is their heavenly sweet citrus scent which fills the garden on warm days. The seeds germinated very well and the plants have grown quickly. I'm so happy I tried these out!

I bought your seeds at my local nursery. Seeds germinated beautifully and these are absolutely incredible!! Beautiful foliage and gorgeous dainty flowers!! The reason I selected this variety was because they are edible. The flowers taste amazing and the fragrance from the foliage is heavenly!! Gem Marigolds have a forever home in my garden!!

These germinated really fast, grew great both under my lights and outdoors in containers and sandy soil in northern Minnesota. I counted over 110 flowers open at once on a single plant!! Scent of foliage is lovely.
