Double flowers measure 4″-5″ across. Foliage is lacy. Fragrance is distinctive, clean and pungent. One of the most maintenance free and useful annuals.


Annual for full sun. Marigolds are among the most popular and easiest to grow annuals, blooming all summer until frost. This Dwarf Double French type produces small yellow and orange flowers that resemble miniature carnations. Ideal in borders, edgings, in masses, or in containers. Non-genetically engineered seeds.
