This tall-growing Marigold traces its origins from Linnaeus’ personal garden in Uppsala, Sweden. It grows in an airy and elegant manner which adds height to beds and bouquets. This variety is called Burning Embers, which shows on its bronze-red coloured flowers, that make for gorgeous cut-flowers. Removing the first few buds will result in a bushier plant. This flower enjoys well-drained and nutrient-rich soil.
