What are the pros? Effortless, lots of flowers

What are the cons? Top heavy, break in high winds

Review:

Today is October 11th and my plants are still loaded with flowers. We had a super dry summer with a few episodes of high winds, causing these 3.5' tall plants to break off and fall over. I was so upset, but was shocked a week or so later when the branches that were lying on ground sprouted roots and started growing as new plants, bigger and stronger as if no damage had ever been done! Baker Seeds' description warns that these marigolds get huge, but "huge" doesn't seem adequate to describe their size in comparison to "normal" marigolds! They were planted in awful clay soil, got very little water most of the summer, but they're like the EverReady Flowers, let me tell ya. I have been collecting seeds from each spent flower; I will probably have in excess of 10K seeds when these Little Shop of Horrors wanna-bes are done for the year. They're pretty, they're enormous, and they'll need to be staked.

Review:

When I was finally able to get some of my seeds to germinate last year, it was worth the effort. I'm having trouble again this year (same pAck of seeds, but I'm determined to get at least one plant because they're so unique and such large plants when they finally get going. Also, I planted several types of marigolds last year and they all kept pollenating each other and my harlequin ended up with different blooms on the same plant. It was awesome. Love them.

Review:

This is a lovely marigold that in warm conditions and fertile soil will look practically like a bush. In masses it can look like a hedge. Highly recommended.

Review:

I really like these. They are large bushy plants and although we have had a fair few blooms over the summer they are budding like crazy now. They are not uniformly perfect but the good ones are gorgeous. They look great with white and red zinnias in the vase.

Review:

Well, out of the 40 (plus or minus two or three) that I planted a couple of weeks ago, only 11 have sprouted. I re-planted the remaining seeds, only to find that I had just 12 seeds left. The minimum seed in the pack was supposed to be 75, but I didn't even get 60! I'm hoping that this is an anomaly, since other reviews have been good, and I've had pretty good results with other seeds from Baker Creek.
