These gorgeous yellow and maroon flowers are as beautiful as the starlet depicted on the poster of the 1935 movie, Naughty Marietta. This tough garden standard is very easy to grow from seed and blooms profusely and continuously from summer to frost. Fairly drought tolerant, great for containers, attracts butterflies, and may repel soil nematodes.French marigolds are edible, but with a very strong flavor similar to its pungent scent. A 1947 All-America Selections winner.

Lovely red-centered yellow blossoms that cover the plant with continuous blooms all summer. Lovely in companion planting with tomatoes and other vegetables.

Huge Plants Covered With Blooms

These have done so well for me in eastern North Carolina and are always covered in bees and other pollinators. Very uniquely fragrant, lovely colored flowers, and they have bloomed from Spring well into October.

The spilled blossoms like water

Zone 7a. I started these indoors under growlights March 18th and tranpslanted to vegetable gardens one month later. In addition to attracting pollinators and detering aphids with early summer blooms, they became the garden's feature in late summer. The plants grew into small shrubs that spilled over the edges of my garden beds with hundreds of flowers. They continued to bloom until late November.

A good marigold

5 out of 5 stars Dec 24, 2021
I was very pleased with these marigolds. We grew them between our tomatoes. They grew in nice and thick under the tomatoes and we didn't have much weed trouble at all. We enjoyed lots of cut flowers and didn't have to deal with many weeds. They grew roughly 12 to 18 inches tall.
