What are the pros? They never stop blooming!
What are the cons? Maybe a bit too prolific.
I planted these marigolds once about 15 or 16 years ago and I have never had to plant them again. I leave enough blooms on the plants to set seed naturally, and each spring they pop up again -- sometimes far from the original beds. I transplant them everywhere I want them and by mid-summer they are bushes covered in big, bright blooms! The flower petals are pretty in potpourri, salads or as color in rice, soups, etc. in addition to looking beautiful in the garden.
