Beautiful and Bountiful
Beautiful and bountiful blooms. Great Marigold fragrance. No aphids have been found near my gardens thanks to them.
Tall crazy bloomers
Grew readily from seed directly in the ground. Got huge and flowered like crazy. Careful what you plant it next to, it overtook my peppers.
Awesome! Loads of blooms, filled in my hellstrip completely.
