What are the pros? Hardy and easy to grow
What are the cons? None so far.
The actual marigolds are prettier than the picture above. Red part is more mahogany, and yellow part makes a sharp, beautiful contrast. It pretty much looks like a hand painted flower. The plants are very compact. I am growing marigolds for the first time, because I don't like the classic marigolds. I decided to try this variety as a companion plant for my tomatoes. I started these in egg cartons indoors in mid February. Kept them in unheated greenhouse and transplanted out at the end of March into the fertile soil, watering them constantly. They started to bloom yesterday, and I loved them. I will be growing "Giant Bicolor" from now on.
