In cooler weather, Red Metamorph's flowers are a deep burgundy, but when the weather warms, watch as splashes of yellow appear on the petals! Then when cooler weather comes back around, the blooms change back to solid burgundy. Beautiful as a garden hedge, this French marigold is stout and dense at about 2'-3' tall. Prolific bloomer attracts beneficial insects.

I started these seeds for my veggie garden last summer and I was thrilled to have them in my garden this past year. These grew to shrub like proportions in my garden and I got so many compliments on them. They were extremely easy to start from seed, grew quickly, and flowered profusely keeping pollinators happily visiting my veggie beds all summer. One plant got cut down and I stuck the stem back in the soil where it rooted. They do get big, so I would plan for some room. I may even plant them around the edge as a sort of living fence around my veggies. These will definitely be making a yearly appearance in my gardens.

I have 2 raised beds. I planted these marigolds on the inside perimeter of each of them, hoping they would protect my vegetables from bugs. They grew to be such huge bushes - not just single plants but bushes - that they pretty much took over most of the garden area! There were several places that I had to remove them just to allow my vegetables to grow. This is not really a complaint because I knew they were supposed to be big, I just didn't realize how big.

Beautiful red/orange velvet looking flower, mostly about 30" tall. My favorite of the marigold garden this year due to its constant display of showy yellow-centered blossoms Clearly a five star performer!

The red metamorph is the longest lasting flower in my garden, and the one that has been visited by pollinators in every part of the season.
