Tagetes patula ‘Strawberry Blonde’

Description

A breeding breakthrough has created a new French Marigold with flowers in totally unique russet tones; bringing pink shades to the marigold color palette for the very first time. These bushy, vigorous, free-flowering French marigolds are set to be this year’s must-have bedding plant. Strawberry Blonde has high weather tolerance ensuring a long season of color in beds, border and containers. Great as a ‘mixer’ but it truly comes into its own when planted en masse in drifts or blocks. Height and spread: 10″. Culinary note: The citrus tasting flowers have many uses; try them in salads, sandwiches or seafood dishes, too. Deadhead to encourage blooming.

Care: Plant 10-14” apart in full sun.
