(Tagetes tenuifolia) A very tidy and ridiculously cheerful (12-18”) mounding plant with a never-ending display of petite marigold flowers ranging in colors from your classic deep reddish-orange to dusty tangerine and lemon yellow. With their strong and slight citrusy smell (especially the yellows), brilliant colors and lacy foliage, it’s no wonder they attract so many beneficials and predatory insects to the garden! Blooming until frost they are a lovely and long-lasting addition to salads, pizzas, very small vases… and anywhere you want to brighten up your day straight through the first hard frost. Also known as Signet or Mexican marigolds and dating back to the late 1700s in the Americas. Small, edible flowers and leaves. Drought tolerant.
60-70 days. UO
