This lovely variety produces large 2-inch flowers on dwarf plants. A brilliant mix of red, gold and orange; it is very pretty and helps repel some insects and nematodes.

What are the pros? Classic marigold

What are the cons? Wish it attracted bees

Review:

This is the classic French-type marigold. It's very easy to grow, transplants well, and is a self-seeder but not invasive. Japanese beetles sometimes collect on it but not nearly as much as on the African varieties. It's not as attractive to bees as other flowers, but if you like marigolds, it's worth growing. The seeds are easy to save, too. Buy this once and you'll never need to buy marigold seeds again.

Review:

I was really surprised how quickly these guys took off, especially since I didn't do anything special in preparing the seeds. I directly sowed these into soil, and BAM! Out they came in a couple days. Like other reviewers have mentioned, this variety grew bigger than I thought they would and do require more attention if you want to keep them from taking lots of space. If that's the look you're going for in your garden, then let them be. These are beautiful and I shall be coming back for more.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, gorgeous

What are the cons? Almost too big!

Review:

These are the first flowers I have grown from seed, and they made me feel like an expert! Grew at the base of tomato plants, and agree with previous reviewers, they are not as dwarf as you would think! Next year I will choose a smaller variety for my veggie garden, but will definitely plant them in front of the house. They are almost bush-like, and if you don't keep them cut when they start getting big, they will fall over the branches get so heavy. They definetely need at least two feet between them. Very beautiful and they produce a ton of flowers!

Review:

I grew this mix of marigolds in my garden this year and was extremely pleased with the result. I plan on planting them in my perennial garden, they were so nice. I would not call them dwarf though, they needed much more than the 1 foot recommended, they ran over the base of my tomato and pepper plants which caused no problem but may for someone growing a lower plant. They stood around 12 inches high and were very full, they spread at least a feet on each side. Long after I stopped watering my garden, even today, the end of October, they are still growing and blooming. All I can say each time I see them is "wow ," it was the highlight of my garden this year and I had a pretty good turnout. Highly recommended.
