Easy to grow marigolds with double flowers in a mix of yellows and oranges. Flowers abundantly, even in bad weather. Pretty in flower beds/pots. Tolerates some frost. Pinch back the first buds for bushier plants and any wilted matter for more abundant flowering. Prefers well-fertilised soils, but is quite undemanding.
