Marigold French Favourite Blend Seeds

Tagetes patula nana

Item #1247

Annual. This award-winning variety from Europe features large flowers with a single row of petals in bright sunny colors surrounding a yellow or orange button center. Butterflies prefer this type of marigold over the full-flowered, double marigolds because it’s easier to reach the nectar. Plants grow and flower quickly with continuous, edible blooms from spring until frost. Fairly drought tolerant once established.
Deer resistant.
