1/4g. 60 days. A French marigold that has dark orange and red blooms that almost look velvey. Blooms are 1 1/2" to 2 1/2" and attract beneficial insects such as hoverflies. Leaves of the plants are edible and can spruce up your salad mix.  Seeds were given to me by Mel Demock, who has a wonderful farmstand called Shovel At A Thyme in Wilmington, VT.

Marigold, Queen Sophia.
