Tagetes patula

Popular summer flower.

Bright brown-red, large flower with a yellow center. Good for flower beds, patio boxes and pots. Well suited as group planting. Thrives in sun, but also partial shade. Withstands rain and strong wind. Thrives in well-fertilized soil, but is not so demanding.

Tagetes patula is commonly called French marigold (though not originating in France). The petals are edible, and while most prefer the taste of Tagetes tenuifolia (signet marigold) or Tagetes lucida (Mexican marigold) over French - they make a beautiful garnish!

Pre-cultivation: April-May. Sow sparsely in moistened seed soil. Place in light at 18-20°C. Takes 10-20 days to germinate. Keep the soil moist after sowing until germination has started. Transplant to 1 plant/pot when the plants are large enough to handle. Plant out when the risk of frost is over.
