Fully doubled flowers in shades of yellow, bronze, and gold. Plants are compact with attractive deep green foliage. Ideal for planting in borders, beds, and container gardens.

Marigolds are my all-time favorite annual, because they are non-stop high performers of color from summer until past Halloween! They are a symbol of death, and are known as the flower of the dead in the celebration of Dia de los Muertos.
