Marigolds bring happy shades of bright summer color to gardens and sunny patios. Our varieties, which will stay compact even in hot weather, are chosen for excellent heat tolerance. Use them in pots, window boxes, and flower beds. Dwarf marigolds are tiny and perfect for small containers, even the pockets of a strawberry jar.
Marigolds bloom reliably in warm weather right up until frost, although they sometimes go through a rest period in extreme heat in the South. They will bounce back when the weather improves. They are a nice late summer flower and fall flower, too, with beautiful orange, yellow, and burnt-orange hues so perfect for autumn.
Plant in well-drained soil and feed with a timed-release fertilizer at planting. Water during periods of drought.
