Spun Orange Marigold

(Tagetes erecta) Extra large, attractive, super-double flowers with tubular petals. The color is a pleasing, clear orange rather than the harsh orange-brown so often seen in African marigolds. Plants are rather compact, seldom exceeding 20 inches. Very uniform size is ideal for cutting, yet earns its keep in the border.

What are the pros? Good germination

What are the cons? Not blooming

Review:

I love this variety so much.. by seeing picture I excited so much and ordered seeds. The germination rate is good and gets lots of buds but all of the buds rot before they bloom.

What are the pros? BIG gorgeous longlasting bloom

What are the cons? Stems short BUT those blooms!

Review:

Plant s were short, but the BIG gorgeous and long-lasting blooms more than made up for any height deficit , & I will plant them in place of French marigolds next year. I plant ed 6 varieties of marigolds this year & this variety was no exception, yet stood out: they bloom profusely in the sun & shade and prefer to be on the dry side. I see that some people have had problems with rotted blooms, so would encourage any future growers to do what I find works best with my marigolds: apply as little TLC as humanly possible, but plant them in rich moisture retaining soil.. ..leave them alone, let them dry out thoroughly before watering, & they are stunning. I don't deadhead to encourage new blooms, so have lots of seeds to collect for next year. I start early & transplant some marigold plants into multi- plant planters, but mostly I seed directly into prepared planters LONG before spring, put the planters out, and just let them germinate when they're ready.

What are the pros? Good germination

What are the cons? Not to description

Review:

These got off to a great start, but once they started flowering, it was a different story. As in other reviews, extremely short stems, not usable for arrangements, most of the buds browned and rotted before fully opening. Deadheading didn't produce any better results. Right in line with other marigolds that did fantastic, so not blaming it on soil or water conditions.

What are the pros? Flowers are pretty, but...

What are the cons? most don't open

Review:

These plants look nice, but most of the buds rot before they open and the ones that do don't last long. They are very sensitive to weather. I was looking forward to a bunch of blooms like the ones in the photo, but most of the flowers never get that far. The best thing about marigolds is that you usually get a lot of performance for not a lot of effort. This marigold doesn't really fit that mold.

Unique marigold blooms

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.
