This charming French marigold is an early and continuous bloomer bearing 2 in., bi-colored blossoms of gold and mahogany red. Just the right height for edging flowerbeds and borders. Easy to grow. Blooms early summer to frost. This is the beautiful and beneficial marigold that repels insects and nematodes, so plant it liberally throughout the garden.
Recent articles suggest that orange marigold petals are fed to laying hens to make the color of their egg yolks a deeper color. A more important benefit is that the pigment of the petals contains beneficial compounds that aid eye health.
Approx 100 seeds per packet.
