Unique marigold blooms
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 1.5
 

What are the pros? direct sow; easy care

What are the cons? late to bloom

Review:

I planted these in 2016. These plants are fairly tall for marigolds and have nice long stems. The blooms are larger than the traditional marigold and the blooms are somewhat unique. I used the direct sow method the weekend after Mother's day and pretty much left the plants to do their thing. The flowers were late to bloom. The plant grew to full high before starting to make buds. This summer was cooler and wetter than other summers so that may have had an impact. You might want to consider starting seeds indoors if you want flowers earlier.

Spun Orange Marigold
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 2.0
 

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? Poor flower formation

Review:

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.
