Marigold French Naughty Marietta HEIRLOOM Seeds

Tagetes patula

Item #1285

These gorgeous yellow and maroon flowers are as beautiful as the starlet depicted on the poster of the 1935 movie, Naughty Marietta. This tough garden standard is very easy to grow from seed, and blooms profusely and continuously from spring to frost. Fairly drought tolerant, great for containers, attracting butterflies, and repelling soil nematodes. A 1947 All-America Selections winner. Deer resistant.
