Gorgeous, bi-color marigold gets covered in flowers. Deep red petals lined with gold - a real stunner. Almost everyone who saw them asked for seed.

Strong grower, reblooms when deadheaded or even heavily trimmed. (Plants can be trimmed midseason, and the cuttings used as fragrance masking for deterring hornworms, leaf-footed bugs, cucumber beetles, etc. Marigold will grow back and strongly rebloom.) About 12-15” tall.

Grown in the hot high desert SW, zone 8a, in marginally improved, very sandy clay using permaculture and organic, low-nitrogen methods.
