What are the pros? none
What are the cons? Poor flower formation
Unfortunately, this variety did not perform well for me. I'm sure it would have been a decent cut flower for very short stemmed bouquets, if the blooms would have formed properly, but flowers were deformed and quickly browned even before fully opening. These, as well as the matching marigold in yellow, did not do well for me. (I believe I may have been given the incorrect seed for the yellow variety, since the flowers did not look like the orange ones at all.) The Spun Gold varieties of marigolds were planted along with the Fantastic Yellow Marigold, which did very well in comparison. I was looking for a good cut flower, and the Spun Gold did not work for me.
