Beautiful and Bountiful
Beautiful and bountiful blooms. Great Marigold fragrance. No aphids have been found near my gardens thanks to them.
Tall crazy bloomers
Grew readily from seed directly in the ground. Got huge and flowered like crazy. Careful what you plant it next to, it overtook my peppers.
Awesome! Loads of blooms, filled in my hellstrip completely.
Survives Texas Heat
by Texas Pete
Grew these in Dallas. Awesome germination rate on heated mat (80f) with grow lights. I accidentally thought these in my garden were Ferry Morse French Double Dwarf, but when I bought those from the big box store they had a horrific price and horrific germination rate (125 seeds and only 6 germinated out of 125 on heat mat/grow lights). The flowers are stunning and they survive the big Texas heat. I would heartily recommend these from Seed Savers!
