What are the pros? Sprout well, didn't die
What are the cons? Smaller than stated, slow grow
Yes, it said "petite" on the label, so I got them for the front row of a bed. The description said 10-12", but I would be surprised if any of them even reached 8" in height, and they didn't even get close to that until almost September. These were the smallest, scrawniest little marigolds I'd ever seen, with the tiniest little flowers ever. (And other varieties of marigold have always thrived here, so it can't be a cultivation issue...) I suppose I'd call them just ok--at least they bloomed, and didn't die on me or anything. They never really filled out, so I had to plant other stuff between them, but after that they looked pretty nice. It sounds like the other reviewers all planted them in pots and had good results, so I'd say stick with that, and advise against putting them in a garden--they're just too small.
